funding with Health Insurance

Dr Menzies  and Dr Short are registered providers with many major health insurance companies.

For many insurers, we have arrangements in place and we can bill them directly. You just pay the excess. 

Unfortunately, certain insurance companies will only pay for about half the time we provide for meetings. We will, therefore, need to ask you about your funding before being able to confirm whether treatment is possible at this point. 

If we have availability, please obtain a pre-authorisation number from your insurer (usually given after a brief phone call). Also check on your excess and if there are any limits on the cover you have - in our experience there are vast differences between policies. We will need a pre-authorisation number before an initial appointment can be confirmed.

Invoicing and payment

  • We will usually invoice your insurer directly and you will only need to pay your excess to us.

  • We kindly request that you sign up to Go Cardless, a direct debit scheme, so we can take payment for this excess efficiently.

 

After the initial assessment we will usually advise treatment with ourselves or may refer you to a colleague; the insurer will need to agree funding for this.
