Payment of Account
You will receive separate accounts from:
The hospital fee covers accommodation, nursing services, theatre charges and medical supplies used in theatre and the ward, and these are also included in the estimate of hospital fees. If physiotherapy or other services are required, you may incur additional costs.
Unless your Surgeon advises you otherwise, the hospital fee figure is an estimate only. For example, an operation may take a shorter or longer time to complete, or you may require a longer stay in hospital than originally estimated. In most cases though your Surgeon will be able to provide you with a reasonably accurate estimate.
We can email your hospital invoice to you if you provide your email details on your admission form.
You will need to obtain prior approval from your health insurance company before your admission.
Please note that some policies do not cover all your medical or surgical costs. There may also be exclusions on your policy. If this is the case, you will need to meet the cost not covered by your insurance company. Your credit card will be debited after we receive the invoice for the outstanding amount from your insurance company.
If your insurance company fails to make payment for any reason, then you are still responsible for making the payment in full.
80% of payment is required before your surgery, the rooms will supply you with an estimate. The outstanding balance will be debited to your credit card once invoice is complete.
