INFORMATION FOR SELF PAYING PATIENTS
If you are not covered by a health insurance company then you can pay all fees directly.
All private hospitals will invoice patients separately for equipment used during these procedures.
It is the patients’ responsibility to enquire about these charges and to settle the bill directly with the hospital concerned.
These bills are separate to and not inclusive of the procedure bill submitted to you by your consultant.
This is of particular importance to self paying patients who should take this into account when budgeting for their treatment.
Self-Pay scheme offered by private hospital often offers special package prices for procedures. You will be asked to pay a pre-admission or pre-attendance deposit. Once the funds clear, you will be able to attend your consultation, procedure or in-patient stay.
