Many people do not realise that the cost of their treatment is covered by their private health insurance policy but instead, find themselves waiting a long time for treatment.
If you have private health insurance (through work or a policy you took out yourself), it is worth checking to see if you could be covered.
Three easy steps to making a claim:
- Visit your GP to discuss your symptoms. If your GP feels you need treatment from a specialist, tell them you have private health insurance and ask for a referral to see a specialist at One Hatfield Hospital.
- Call your insurance company after you have seen your GP to discuss your referral and obtain authorisation.
- Contact us at One Hatfield Hospital to arrange an appointment (your insurance company may do this on your behalf).
Make the most of your cover and avoid unnecessary delays in receiving the treatment you need.
