What information will my medical insurance company need?
When you speak to your medical insurance company, you will be provided with an authorisation for your first appointment. The provider (the medical insurance company) will also inform you what care your cover allows, including any tests and potential surgery.
What information shall I bring to my appointment?
Please bring your referral letter if you have one. Please also bring a list of your medication. The hospital will also ask you to bring your authorisation details from your medical insurance provider.
Please also bring any previous or up to date imaging that may have been taken, including any CDs.
Will I have all my tests done on the same day?
Whilst you may have an X-ray during the consultation, which Mr Majed will review with you, other tests including MRI scans and US scans/injections are by appointment only. You may need a follow up consultation to review the results and plan further treatment.
What happens if I need surgery?
Mr Majed will explain the process to your clearly. The benefits, risk and alternatives will be discussed. Once surgery has been agreed upon, you will have a pre-operative assessment prior to your admission. You may also need to see one of our anaesthetic specialists prior to your admission. Further information can be found in Information for Patients.
You will also be given a Procedure Code to give to your medical insurance company for authorisation.
