If you are unsure about how your Contract works, please ask.
Part A – Insured Patients
(This section will apply if you are covered by private medical insurance)
- You agree to pay for your Care.
- While you will remain responsible for the payment of your Care, where you have private medical insurance:
- We will, where possible, process the insurance claim for your Care with your insurer, provided you have given us and your insurer all the information we and your insurer need to do so. If this information is incomplete or inaccurate, we may not be able to process your claim and you will need to pay for your Care, as set out in (c) below;
- Please note, each insurance company requires that we abide by agreed fees set up in their schedule and that these fees may differ from our published fees.
- Where we process your insurance claim and your insurer pays us direct, the rate agreed between Diga33 Ltd and your insurer (rather than the Diga33 Ltd standard rates) will apply to your Care. If your insurer fails to settle our invoices (or any part of them) within 30 days of the date of issue we will assume that the outstanding amount will not be paid by your insurer and we may invoice you direct or debit the balance from your credit or debit cards in accordance with the process set out in paragraph 14 below;
- If we invoice you for your Care or an element therewith, you agree to pay us the amount invoiced within the time limits set out therein. If you do not think that we have invoiced you correctly, please let us know as soon as possible so we can deal with any errors or misunderstandings.
- It is your responsibility to confirm with your insurer, in advance, that your Care is covered by your insurance policy. Diga33 Ltd will not obtain any confirmation on your behalf whilst you are undergoing treatment at Diga33 Ltd.
- Please note that some insurers use Care guidelines that may not match the professional medical opinion of the Consultants, nursing staff and other medical professionals providing your Care. In some cases, this could mean that your insurer may not pay for certain parts of the Care you receive, and you will be required to pay for that part of your Care. In particular, you should note that treatment for complications may, in some cases, not be covered by insurance and in such cases you agree to cover the cost of your Care as set out in paragraph 2(c) above.
- Please note that your insurance policy may not cover the cost of medications or other items such as specialist equipment or it may only cover part of such costs. You will be required to pay for any such items not reimbursed by your insurers.
- If you pay for your treatment and subsequently seek reimbursement from your insurer, and if no other rate has been expressly agreed between you and Diga33 Ltd, Diga33 Ltd published rates will apply to your Care.
Part B – Self-Pay
- You should specify to the consultant the service that you require.
- Consultation: is where you request a consultant opinion regarding a particular health complaint; a maximum of three complaints allowed per one consultation.
- Ultrasound: is where you request an Ultrasound scan only. The consultant may ask you for the reason for the scan. The consultant will explain the results of the scan after scan examination but will not make any suggestion or diagnosis. You are advised to take these results to your doctor and discuss your complaint with him/her.
- Tests: Laboratory or office tests may be required to assist the doctor in reaching an appropriate diagnosis. These will be recommended by the consultant after a consultation at which point the fees will be explained. These tests will only be carried out after your consent.
- Blood or swab tests may be requested without consultation subject to administration fees. You must inform us what tests you require, and you must discuss the results with your doctor/gynaecologist or at a follow up consultation.
You will be requested to settle all fees incurred at the end of your visit.
What happens if I decide not to go ahead?
- If you decide not to go ahead with your Treatment Package, you will need to pay for the Care that you have received up to the point of cancellation. This will be charged as pro-rata according to the care you received so far, but you will not have to pay more than the Fixed Price in relation to items which are included in the Fixed Price. We reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee in accordance with paragraph 12 below if you cancel your treatment within 24 hours of a scheduled appointment or admission date.
- If you have already paid for your Treatment Package, we will refund your payment, less any amount that you owe to Diga33 Ltd (as relevant, see Paragraph 15 below). Please note that we will pay any refund (by banking transfer) only to the person who made the original payment. We do not pay cash refunds.
