Confirming cover with your insurer
As you are responsible for the costs of your treatment it is important you understand the cover your insurer will provide. The best way to ensure your insurance company will cover your treatment costs is to contact them prior to the date of your appointment to inform them of your treatment details. If your insurance company confirm cover you should obtain an authorisation code from them. You are always advised to obtain authorisation before undergoing investigations, treatment and follow-up consultations. Please arrange for a referral letter from your GP or referring consultant to be faxed to Dr Adler at 01753 245085 or please bring it to your appointment as this contains important information and is often a requirement from your insurance company.
