WITH MEDICAL INSURANCE

OUT-PATIENT APPOINTMENTS AND PROCEDURES:

You will need to inform your insurance company to check that you are covered for the appointment before you attend. Please provide The ENT Clinic with your policy details prior to your appointment. You will need to obtain a pre-authorisation number from your insurer. Please check whether any top up fee is payable by you, particularly if your insurer does not cover Mr Kirkland’s full fee.

For any clinic appointment and procedure that may be necessary, Mr Kirkland charges in line with the accepted codes and fees set up by the individual private medical insurance companies.

We will handle the invoicing directly with your insurance company – you will not need to do anything.

If you do require any additional procedures during your consultation, Mr Kirkland will discuss this with you in advance so you are aware of any additional costs.

OPERATIONS:

Your chosen hospital will put together a fee package for your operation which will include all surgical fees (including anaesthetist, surgeon and hospital costs).  Once they have your confirmation, you will be asked to attend a pre-admission visit at the hospital.

Usually, the hospital asks for the fees to be paid in advance.
