Once your General Practioner confirms you require review by a Cardiologist you maybe required to obtain authorisation from your insurance company prior to arranging a consultation or any investigations/treament. This experience can be daunting and it may not always be clear what information the insurance company requires. These phonelines are often manned by non medical staff reading from a script. The Consultantcare team will provide unparalled support through this process providing the relevent clinical codes used by insurance companies and can speak to the insurance company on your behalf
It is accepted practise for insurance companies to set their fees for a procedure. If the charge set out by the individual consultant is greater than the insurance payout then the patient can be asked to make up the difference. We believe this is unacceptable. If your insurance company authorises a procedure/treatment, we will ensure our fees do not exceed the tariffs set out by your insurance company. If your insurance company has a lower tariff than what we usually charge then you will NOT be subject to any excess costs. This is a guarantee provided by Cheshire Cardiac Services. We strongly believe concerns about your health should not be hampered by financial worries.
