Self pay patients
If you do not have private health insurance, a "fixed price" scheme is available from the hospital, which guarantees the price of your hospitalisation, surgical and anaesthetic costs. Further details of this scheme are available on request from the hospital. All outpatient appointments are charged separately to the fixed price scheme.

Insured patients
For patients with medical insurance the fees charged for the surgery will be advised with an estimate prior to surgery. The fees are according to the BMA schedule with an allowance for inflation since 1992, and you should expect these to be usually and customary settled in full by your insurance company. You are advised to contact your insurance company to ascertain your level of cover prior to undergoing treatment. If your insurance cover is limited or deficient then patients do remain responsible for the settlement of the surgeons' fees.

All patients
The invoice will be sent to you by post after your surgery. The fees depend on the type and complexity of the procedure performed. Although these can usually be estimated prior to surgery, on occasion the procedure undertaken will prove to be more extensive than foreseen and additional procedures, or prolonged hospital stay may prove necessary. In such situations further fees may be added to your bill. The insurance companies generally make allowances for such contingencies and have ways of calculating such additional charges. These fees are fair, reasonable and customary and should usually be settled in full by your insurance company. If there is any problem with getting reimbursement for the fees from your insurer, please let the secretary know, however if your insurance cover is limited or deficient then patients do remain responsible for the settlement of the surgeons' fees.

Payment is requested within 14 days. Interest and a late payment fee will be added if payment is delayed by more than 30 days and further costs added if further administration is necessary to secure payment beyond this time.
