Private Medical Insurance

The Birmingham Fibroid Clinic specialists are recognised by all the major private health insurance providers . To avail of your private insurance cover it is essential to  contact your insurer in advance and obtain the necessary pre-authorisation for treatment. Our office can provide our specialists’ provider numbers for the insurance company concerned as well as the procedure codes for the proposed treatment. Having this information before contacting your insurer speeds up the process of getting pre-authorisation.

While our specialists’ professional fees are within the insurance companies’ published guideline ranges the level of cover will depend on the conditions of your individual policy or that provided by your employer and cover should always be checked in advance. Some policies may stipulate an excess to be paid by the policy holder and this may be invoiced to you directly. There may be annual limits on cover, limits on out-patient cover or restricted cover for pre-existing conditions.  Certain policies may also limit the choice of hospitals where treatment can be provided. UK Insurers usually stipulate that you must be referred to Miss Irani or Dr. Crowe by your general practitioner.

For patients travelling from overseas our specialists are also recognised by many international and expatriate health insurance providers. In other cases our partner private hospitals may have agreements with international insurers and can facilitate treatment planning by liaising directly with the insurer for price quotes and invoicing.
