Private Medical Insurance

We are recognised by most of the major insurers with the exception of Axa.  There is, however, likely to be a small shortfall in the reimbursement you receive from your insurers for operative procedures.  Consultations, scans and investigations are usually fully covered, however the reimbursement from insurers for operations has not increased since 1990 and they do not allow discretionary payments for doctors demonstrating low complication rates or undertaking more challenging surgery.

We have therefore had to make the difficult choice to begin charging our insured patients the same as our uninsured patients which will sometimes mean that you will be asked to fund the balance between what we charge and what your insurers will reimburse.

You will be given a clear indication of the cost of treatment with Mr Lower and you should clarify with your insurers what they are likely to reimburse.
