Self pay (own account)
Patients paying their own account will be asked to pay a deposit which is payable on, or before admission. Admission is not possible if the deposit has not been received.
Patients need to supply a signed letter from their sponsor clearly accepting responsibility for payment of their account. This must happen on or before the patient’s admission. The Trust will only accept sponsorship from UK-based companies.
Royal Brompton Hospital has excellent relationships with a number of embassies in the London area. Patients being sponsored for private healthcare by their embassy need to produce a letter of guarantee from the embassy before any outpatient or inpatient treatment can occur. The letter must clearly state that the embassy agrees to cover the total cost of care and stipulate any exclusions to full payment.
Patients are asked to supply a completed claim form. Medical insurance cover is a contract between patients and their insurer and patients are ultimately responsible for settling their account should the insurer not recognise the claim. The Trust strongly advises all patients to check their eligibility before admission, with particular reference to exclusions and waiting periods.
