Accessing Care

If you have Private Medical Insurance or are paying for yourself you can access care in the following ways

Using Your Private Medical Insurance

Adrian is covered by all major insurance companies including:

  • AXA PPP
  • Bupa
  • Aviva
  • WPA
  • Simply Health
  • Healix Health
  • CIGNA
  • Vitality Health
  • Alliance Surgical
  • April UK
  • CIGNA International
  • CS Healthcare
  • Exeter Friendly

It is important to call your insurance company to make sure you are covered by your policy. You can then obtain an authorisation code which you can give to the booking team at the hospital you choose. 

Most insurers will require you to have a referral letter from your GP or other clinician. This will help by providing us with a detailed medical history and anything pertaining to your current needs. 

 

Paying For Your Own Treatment

You don’t have to have health insurance to get access to private treatment. Increasingly, many patients are choosing to pay for their treatment as and when it is needed. 

You will only be charged for the treatment you need, and you can rest assured that there are no hidden costs. Everything you pay for will be discussed with you up front, either by Dr Barnardo’s office or the hospital in which your treatment takes place.

You can call us on 01622 538 118 or email medicalsecserv@kims.org.uk for any pricing queries you have.
