There are two main ways to fund your private hospital treatment - use your private medical insurance, if you have it, or pay-for-yourself.
Private Medical Insurance
Mr Kucheria and Mr Bourke are recognised by all the major insurance companies and bill within their guidelines, which means there will 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.
If you decide to pay-for-yourself, we would prefer you are still referred by your GP although this is not essential.
The fixed price hospital packages include consultant fees, anaesthetic fees, hospital costs, discharge medication, walking aids and prostheses costs.
Some of the providers also offer credit facilities to help spread the cost of your hospital treatment. Both BMI Healthcare BMI finance and Spire Healthcare Spire finance have these options available to you.
