How to pay for your treatment
- Insured patients:
We encourage you to contact your private medical insurance company prior to any appointment with a consultant, and again before any test or treatments are undertaken. They will provide you with an authorisation code which should cover all of your hospital care. Nuffield Health policy is always to request a credit card “swipe” to cover any additional items (visitor’s meals, telephone calls) or tests which may not be authorised by your insurer.If in doubt please contact a member of our Finance team who will be more than happy to give you guidance.
- Self-Paying Patients:
For patients who are uninsured and prefer to pay for their treatment please contact a member of our Enquiry Handling team who will be pleased to provide you with prices for any tests or treatments your consultant proposes.
Under the Nuffield Promise we confirm that, once your treatment has been agreed with your consultant and your cost has been given to you by Nuffield Health Cambridge Hospital, the price will not alter, even if there is a clinical reason for you to stay in hospital longer than anticipated.
