If this occurs, prior notice will be given.

    Costs incurred, which are not included in the package price, will be charged at the admitting hospital’s standard rate. Patients will be advised of any additional costs in addition to the Spinal-Healthcare package.

    Written Quotation

    You will receive a written quotation for your Spinal-Healthcare package. Unless it is otherwise agreed in writing by us the price of the service will be the price set out in our written quotation letter.

    Spinal-Healthcare, a member of Medical Associates Ltd, reserves the right to withdraw the quoted price at any time prior to the appointment.

    Spinal-Healthcare also reserves the right not to offer a treatment package or treatment for any reason.

    The quoted price of the package is valid for a period of 30 days from the date of issue.

    Consultants Fees

    The fees for the MRI scan and consultation are included in the quoted package price for Spinal-Healthcare spine assessment packages.

    Payment

    For patients with private healthcare insurance or equivalent that provides reimbursement for this treatment, settlement arrangements are as per the prevailing agreement between the admitting hospital and the insurer or third party. For all patients, payment must be made in full prior to admission. The admitting hospital reserves the right to refuse admission to a patient who has not paid in full. You may require a referral from your General Practitioner to validate your private medical insurance claim.

    Payment may also be made by other methods including credit/debit card, cheques or BACS transfer. Personal cheques can be accepted but need a minimum of 5 working days to clear. If an MRI is deemed inappropriate, the patient will be refunded the price of the scan and pay for the assessment consultation only. Any further treatment offered after diagnosis will incur extra charges and full payment will be required prior to the treatment being undertaken.
