Self Pay Patients

For swift, affordable healthcare that gets you back to the life you love.

Just because you don’t have health insurance, it doesn’t mean you can’t have swift access to private hospital treatment. Private treatment can be just as accessible by paying for yourself. Our treatment costs are transparent and procedures can be covered by a one-off payment – and are more affordable than you might think.

Mr. Johnson is happy to see patients who wish to pay for themselves (Self pay patients), insured patients including those with full cover, partial cover, co-payment insurance or where care costs are managed by their medical insurance company, employer or road traffic accident claims solicitor. Mr. Johnson is an independent private medical practitioner not contracted with a medical insurance company or single hospital to provide limited cost-managed care. Decisions will always be taken entirely with the patient’s best interests in mind. Patients are then free to make their own decisions as to how to proceed. Patients will be provided with a treatment plan and an estimate of the costs for that treatment as far as is possible. Where patients have medical insurance cover which is limited by excesses, exclusions, co-payments or limitations then patients should check with their insurance company to determine the extent of cover they have.

Self-funding patients

Increasingly patients without private medical insurance are opting to fund their own medical treatment in the private sector. Following an initial consultation and subsequent investigations, a diagnosis will be made and a management plan formulated. Based on this plan a fixed price cost for any surgical treatment may be provided. In general private hospitals will require payment in full before the treatment is provided.

The scale of standard expected fees for self pay uninsured patients appears below. This may be varied dependent upon the time taken, co-morbidities, the complexity and urgency of the procedure, out of normal working hours, emergency treatment and depends upon whether patients are insured, NHS, road traffic accidents, medico-legal, medical-negligence cases or from aboard.
