Mr Peter Clarke is recognised by all major medical insurance companies in the UK. The Private Office has direct payment facilities with the majority of medical insurance companies. However, patients are advised to contact their insurance company prior to their appointment to confirm their cover and to obtain an authorisation number which will facilitate the reimbursement of professional fees. Please check with your insurance company about the level of excess in your policy which will have to be covered by the patient.
Please bring the details of your insurance cover and your authorisation number when you attend your appointment. We will usually be able to communicate directly with the insurance company on your behalf after you have obtained an authorisation number. Please note AXA PPP have changed their policy to make Mr Clarke ‘fee limited’. This means that they do not cover his fees in full.
As a result, you are likely to receive notification from AXA PPP that there is a shortfall on the payment. A statement and copy invoice will be provided to you by the Private Office once we are aware of the shortfall. Please can you settle the outstanding amount using the instructions given on the bottom of the invoice . Please use your invoice number as a reference.
Please note that where an excess applies and your insurance company informs you that you need to pay Mr Clarke directly, it may be that the original invoice was raised by the hospital on his behalf. Please check with the Private Office if you are in doubt.
