Having medical Insurance relationship is great for you. However, as you would expect with any insurance relationship you have a few hoops to jump through. These hoops are slightly different for each policy, and the most significant difference is between personal and work-based types:
YOUR INSURANCE POLICY - KEY POINTS
For private medical insurance plans, there can be an excess to pay – it is usually about £100. But it will still be worth your while making a claim as the average number of treatments for a typical simple back problem is ten visits (most insurance companies cover this regular ten sessions).
For more complicated or longer lasting problems more treatment than this is a usually required, so it makes even more financial sense for you to make a claim should your case turn out to be one of these.
How Much Care Will My Insurance Cover?
We are big on independence and posture correction at the clinic, but medical insurance is only for painful problems. Pain is our priority as we cannot fix posture if it is too sore for you to move, your medical insurance will normally cover this stage of treatment (individual policies vary so please check with your provider).
Shall I Make A Claim?
If you are unsure whether to make a claim or not: you can pay for the first consultation yourself, only £60. At this visit, we will be able to give you a guide to how many treatments you are likely to need so you can decide how best to proceed. (NOTE: Not all insurance companies will reimburse the full cost of consult unless you have an activation code from your company. We only honour insurance payments with these activation code companies e.g. BUPA & Axia PPP after the date you code is received/activated - WE NEED THIS CODE TO PROCESS YOUR INSURANCE COVER).
