Insured Patients

If you are insured, it is necessary that you advise your insurance company that you are attending the hospital before your visit. They will tell you whether your policy will cover the treatment and how to make a claim.

To enable us to settle your account directly with your insurance company, we will need the following information upon your arrival at the hospital:

  • Name of the insurance company
  • Registration number
  • The scale or level of your insurance cover
  • Claim form
  • Claim number or authorisation code.

Claim Forms: Most insurance companies require the claim form to be completed by yourself and either your GP or Consultant. Wherever possible, a claim form must be completed before or on admission.

The hospital invoice will be sent direct to your insurance company, providing we have had the appropriate information and authorisation.

Please note:  It is the responsibility of the patient to ensure that their account is settled in full and any reminders from the finance department will be sent to the patient directly.  It is the patient's responsibility to settle any shortfall not covered by their insurance.
