We are able to provide estimated costs for procedures carried out by Stuart upon request. These figures are always a guide and may vary slightly according to each individual case; we can confirm the exact price of your treatment after your consultation.
If you have private medical insurance, it is a good idea to contact your insurer prior to your first appointment. It is well worth ascertaining the full scope of your policy at an early stage, so you are clear about the procedures it covers, making sure you enquire about claims for investigatory measures including imaging, surgery and hospital fees.
Stuart is registered with all the major insurance companies. However, a number of companies will insist on you first having had a referral from your GP or another specialist, so it is particularly important to contact your insurer if you are self-referring. Stuart's PAs are on hand to help answer queries or respond to any objections your insurer may raise – please do not hesitate to contact them on 07716 396317 or 07904 260302, by pressing the email button to the left, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Your insurer should then issue a pre-authorisation letter which you should bring to your first consultation. If you require surgery, you will also need to present your insurance details at the hospital on the day you are admitted. We also accept letters of guarantee from embassies or other companies, as long as you tell us in advance and then bring the relevant information along to your appointment. However, patients who are insured by companies outside the UK are required to pay for any treatment themselves and then make a separate claim. All patients hold the final responsibility for settling their own account and will be called upon to make up any shortfalls if an insurer withholds or limits payment.
If you are opting to self-pay, we will be delighted to help you with a guaranteed package price for what you need, based on your initial consultation. we are very keen to offer a transparent costing service, without hidden costs. please contact Cindy or Julie for more details.
Please note that I am fully compliant with section 22 of the Competition and Markets Authority, and I will write to you regarding any further costs in advance, such as investigations and treatments. I remain Fee Assured with all the major insurers.
