This website can answer many questions related to private treatment and is a valuable resource for both patients and medical practitioners.

 

The following website also publishes a useful explanation sheet for patients with information about medical fees in the private sector.

Terms

Prior to surgery, every patient is given a quote for their proposed surgical procedure. This quote will apply to the surgical procedure only, and will not include the cost of the anaesthetic services, hospital stay, physiotherapy or follow-up consultations. Most insurance companies require a copy of this quotation before they can authorise the treatment proposed. Patients need to be aware that presently most health insurance policies involve an excess which the patient is obliged to cover. Details of this can be found in your health insurance policy document.

 

All invoices are expected to be settled within 30 days of issue. Failure to comply may result in referral to a debt-collection agency, with patients potentially incurring further legal costs and fees. Our contract to treat is with the patient and not their insurance company. Patients are therefore liable for all invoices in the event of their health insurance company failing to settle the invoice.

 

Uninsured patients are seen under the same terms as outlined above. For uninsured patients, The Hampshire Clinic will prepare an individual quotation, outlining the cost of all fees excluding out-patient physiotherapy.
