Fixed cost care for self-pay patients
Our fixed cost care scheme is designed for people who wish to fund their own private healthcare directly, without the use of an insurance policy. Fixed cost care offers a range of packages to cover treatment pathways, from initial consultation through to procedure and aftercare. The package can be tailored to your requirements and gives you the peace of mind of knowing that all costs are covered.
The offer of fixed cost care is subject to a written offer from the hospital. Payment can be made by cheque or cash. All funds must be received and cleared prior to admission. Please make cheques payable to Tetbury Hospital Trust Ltd
Insured outpatient treatment
If you wish to use your insurance policy to access private healthcare you must gain authorisation from your insurance company prior to attending the hospital for your consultation
Your insurance company will tell you whether your policy will cover the treatment and how to make a claim. So we can settle your account directly with your insurance company we will need the following information:
-Name of your insurance company
-The scale or level of your insurance cover
-Corporate/company scheme details
-Claim number or authorisation code
Insured day case treatment
If you wish to proceed to day case surgery at Tetbury it is important that you tell your insurers of the proposed admission date and the treatment plan.
Some insurance companies require a claim form to be completed by you, and either the consultant or your GP. You will normally receive three invoices:
-One from the Hospital
-One from the Consultant Surgeon
-One from the Consultant Anaesthetist
These invoices will normally be sent with your claim to your insurance company. However, some consultants are 'self-accounting' which means they may send your invoice direct to your home address for you to forward to your insurers.
For both insured and self-pay patients
Some consultants may make their charges to you independently of the hospital, this will be made clear to you and a cheque made payable to the consultant should be sent to the address on the consultants letter.
