There are two main ways to fund your private hospital treatment - use your private medical insurance, or if you have it, pay-for-yourself.
Private Medical Insurance
If you have private medical insurance, please contact your insurer before your consultation, to check the terms of your policy, particularly the level and type of outpatient cover you have, including any reimbursement limits on individual consultation fees.
Mr Vedi is recognised by all the major insurance companies and bill within their guidelines, which means there should be no shortfall for you to pay. However, insurance companies do usually require a GP referral before agreeing to cover the costs of your hospital treatment. Please contact them prior to your first appointment to ensure they will authorise your claim. Once authorised, you will then be given a pre-authorisation number to quote for your consultation and ongoing treatment.
You need to keep your insurance company informed to obtain approval for further appointments, physiotherapy or diagnostics.
Please note you are responsible for any fees not covered by your insurer.
If you decide to pay-for-yourself, we would prefer you are still referred by your GP although this is not essential.
