Self-pay outpatient consultation
Our consultants will normally invoice you directly for their fees. You will be advised of the fee payable when you make your appointment.
Self-pay day case treatment
Our fixed cost care scheme is designed for patients who wish to fund their own private day case treatment without the use of an insurance policy. Fixed cost care covers the treatment pathway from procedure to aftercare, and includes your surgeon’s and anaesthetist’s fees. Packages are tailored to individual requirements and ensure peace of mind that everything is covered. The offer of fixed cost care is subject to a written offer from the hospital.
Payment for procedures must be received prior to admission.
Insured outpatient consultation
If you wish to use your insurance policy to access private healthcare you must obtain authorisation from your insurance company prior to attending the hospital for your consultation. Your insurance company will advise if your policy will cover the fees and how to make a claim. In most cases your consultant will invoice your insurer direct, and he/she will be able to advise you on this.
Insured day case treatment
If you wish to proceed to day case surgery it is important that you tell your insurers of the proposed admission date and the treatment plan. Your insurance company will advise if your policy will cover the costs and how to make a claim. You will normally receive separate invoices from:
• Tetbury Hospital
• Consultant Surgeon
• Consultant Anaesthetist (if an anaesthetist is involved in your care)
The hospital invoice will normally be sent to your home address for you to forward to your insurers with your claim documentation. Payment is then usually made directly to the hospital by your insurer. To facilitate this, it is helpful if you can provide us with:
• Name of your insurance company
• Registration number
• Claim number or authorisation code
