IN-PATIENT TREATMENT

If you require surgical treatment this might be undertaken as a day case or may require a stay in hospital.

The cost of this treatment is usually broken down into 3 parts.

  • Mr Stranks’ charge
  • Anaesthetist’s charge
  • Clinic charge

You or your insurance company are likely to receive invoices separately for each part.  There are too many procedures to list them all here.

If you have any questions regarding the approximate cost of treatments please enquire from Mr Stranks’ secretary.  At the time of booking your procedure a written quotation will be provided.

Sometimes proposed operative treatments need to be changed for your benefit at the time of operation.  The fee charged will be for the actual procedure undertaken.

HEALTH INSURANCE

If you have health insurance your costs will be covered up to the limit that your policy dictates.  Please be aware that any shortfalls will be payable by yourself as the treatment is between yourself and Mr Stranks and not between yourself and the insurance company.

Mr Stranks is happy to arrange for your claim form and subsequent invoices to be sent directly to your insurance company after they have been completed.  We are also happy to send copies of the invoices to you if you request this.  Your insurance company will inform you if there is an excess or shortfall which you will then need to pay.

If there is a dispute with your insurance company it would be appreciated if you would settle Mr Stranks account yourself during your negotiations.

If you do not have medical insurance all invoices will be sent directly to yourself.

Mr Stranks, along with the many of the orthopaedic surgeons in the North Hampshire region, charge according to the WPA fee schedule. Insurance companies have not increased their surgeons’ fees for some considerable time.  Unfortunately, as a result some companies do not always provide a full level of cover and there may be a shortfall on your account.

Mr Stranks does have specific agreements with some insurance companies, with the aim of keeping shortfalls to a minimum.

If you have any concerns regarding your level of cover please discuss this with Mr Stranks’ secretary or with your insurance company.

The consultant anaesthetists working at The Hampshire Clinic also charge according to the WPA schedule, and it is advised that you also check their fees.

FIXED PRICE PACKAGE

The Hampshire Clinic and the North Hampshire Hospital Candover Clinic offer fixed prices for surgery for patients who are not insured.  The price quoted will not include the cost of the initial consultation fees, but does include the operation and outpatient follow-up appointments for 6 months.

Please make enquiries through Mr Stranks’ secretary if you require a formal fixed price quotation.
