Insured Patients

If you are covered by private medical insurance, please ensure that you have contacted them prior to your initial consultation. We require your policy number, as well as a claim number authorising your treatment.

As an insured patient, you will have access to leading cardiologists and other specialists to help you every step of the way. We’ll aim to get you an appointment with the right consultant within 48 hours of your enquiry. If in doubt on whether you require a referral letter, do contact us on 01202 705454 and we will be more than happy to explain the process.

In some instances, we require a letter of guarantee from your insurer stating they are covering the costs of your treatment. It is vital that you confirm cover before you commit yourself to treatment.

While the clinic will invoice your insurance company directly, it is your responsibility to ensure that your claim has been authorised.

Should insurers, sponsors or guarantors decline or delay payment, you will be invoiced for immediate settlement. Please also be aware you are responsible should there be any financial shortfall between what your insurer has agreed and your final invoice.

Please telephone us on 01202 705454 for any specific queries.
