Our fees reflect the highly specialised work we do and will depend on the procedure being performed, its complexity, whether it is a revision procedure and also our patients own individual requirements and wishes such as which hospital they desire and whether they need or wish to stay overnight. We will also discuss whether the procedure can be done as a local or general anaesthetic or even deep sedation. As one can imagine, each quote will be highly individualised to reflect this.
Depending on the condition and how it occurred, parts or all of the surgical procedure may be covered by Medical insurers. We would be happy to discuss this with our patients and liaise as necessary with the insurer although ultimately it will be up to the patient to ensure such funding is covered. Medical insurance, does not, however cover any pure cosmetic surgery or aesthetic parts of the operation and fees would be payable by the patient. Where there is an overlap and part of the procedure is covered, we will ensure the patient is given a written quote in advance of any amount payable by them. Typically these will incorporate additional hospital, anaesthetic and surgical fees. Our quotes do not include costs of medications as these will vary from patient to patient and even when patients are insured, these are not typically covered.
We are fully accredited and recognised by all major UK insurers and have worked with overseas insurers on some occasions in the past, although this is done on a case by case basis. We generally bill within most insurers guidelines although insurance companies vary in their maximum fees allowable, so it is important for our patients to check about their individual level of cover for any procedure.
We are recognised providers by all major health insurance companies.
