There are a number of ways to pay for treatment at CircleBath,
the main ones are:
- Through private or company supported medical insurance
- Funding your own treatment through one of CircleBath's self-pay
The amount that needs to be paid will depend on the treatment
Can I use a credit or debit card?
Yes, payment by credit or debit card can be made by telephone
prior to your admission.
Can I pay with a cheque?
Yes, payment by personal cheque is accepted but must be received
10 days before your attendance to enable the cheque to clear.
If you have health insurance we always advise that you check with
your insurance company that the proposed treatment is covered by
your policy prior to attending your appointment.
We also recommend that you liaise closely with your insurance
company throughout the course of treatment as each provider has
slightly different requirements.
When you come to the hospital please bring with you your
Insurance Registration documents and completed claim form, or
alternative proof of pre-authorisation. If required by your
insurance policy, please make sure that your claim form has been
signed by your GP.
If you do not have all of your insurance details with you, it
may be necessary for you to settle your account in full upon
admission to CircleBath. In order to meet the admission
requirements of many insurance companies, we may need you to
provide the date when your symptoms first developed and the date
that you subsequently visited your GP.
We have agreements with many insurance companies and the
hospital will invoice them directly. However if you receive any
invoices from your Consultant after discharge, you will need to
forward these to your insurance company for payment.
Many insurance companies have an excess payment policy and it is
advisable to check if there is any excess that you will be liable
to pay for any treatment.
Please note that take home medicines (apart from your own
medication which is returned to you) and physiotherapy aids are not
covered by medical insurance and you will therefore be presented
with a bill where applicable.
Self Pay Patients
If you are not covered by medical insurance and are self-funding
the cost of your treatment, you will be required to pay the agreed
cost in full prior to your admission. If you are being admitted
under any of the hospital's Self Pay options you will receive a
detailed quote - including our Terms and Conditions - in advance of
your treatment. This quote will identify what you need to pay and
exactly what is included or excluded from this price.
What about day case treatments?
For Outpatient treatments a price list is available from the
nursing station to ensure that you are aware of the costs of
treatments / procedures.
If you have any queries about the cost of your treatment please
contact us on 0808 188 1880.
If you are admitted to the hospital under an NHS contract there
will be no charges made to you other than those charges incurred
for extras which are detailed below.
Costs for any extras such as telephone calls, visitors' meals etc,
will be invoiced to you and payment collected when you leave
hospital. In order to assist in this process you may be asked to
sign a Credit Card Mandate on admission. The CircleBath
Registration Form, available to all patients, contains details of
the hospital's general Terms and Conditions
