How To Pay

At the Ulster Independent Clinic there are a number of ways to pay for treatment

Insured Patients

  • If you have private or company supported health insurance, the Ulster Independent Clinic may be able to work directly with your insurance company. However, it is important that you liaise with your insurance company before commencing and throughout any consultation or treatment.
  • It is essential that you obtain a Pre-Authorisation Reference for your proposed treatment and ensure your policy will cover the treatment before attending.
  • Where a Claim Form has to be completed, please bring it with you on admission to ensure it is completed and returned to your insurer on a timely basis.
  • When contacting your insurer regarding a surgical episode please quote the procedure code provided by the Consultant.
  • If there is an excess in your policy, this will be advised to you by your insurer. You are then responsible for payment of any such excess.
  • Your Consultant Surgeon and Anaesthetist are self-employed practitioners and as such will issue their own fee invoices separately. Should these invoices be sent to you please forward them to your insurer.
  • Any queries or difficulties regarding the hospital invoices are dealt with by the Accounts Department within the hospital.
  • The Consultant or his/her secretary will deal with any queries or difficulties regarding his/her invoices.

Self Paying

  • The Ulster Independent Clinic will be able to provide, on request, an approximate costing for any diagnostic test, treatment or surgical procedure.
  • The charges raised by the Clinic are in addition to your consultant’s fees. He/she will be able to advise you regarding these.
  • The hospital invoice will be issued on discharge from the hospital and is due for immediate settlement.
  • Your Consultant Surgeon and Anaesthetist are self-employed practitioners and as such will issue their own fee invoices separately.
  • Any queries or difficulties regarding the hospital invoices are dealt with by the Accounts Department within the hospital.
  • The Consultant or his/her secretary will deal with any queries or difficulties regarding his/her invoices.
  • Fixed price surgery packages are offered for a number of surgical procedures. Where your surgery is offered on a fixed price basis you may discuss this option with your Consultant.

Fixed Price Surgery

Fixed price surgery is a payment option specially designed for those patients who wish to self-fund their procedure, which guarantees the cost of treatment.

Fixed price surgery packages are offered for a number of surgical procedures. The composite fee includes the hospital charges and those of the Consultant Surgeon and Anaesthetist. The fees collected on behalf of the self-employed Consultants are paid directly to them.

Payment by Sports Clubs / Associations

Where your treatment is to be paid for by a sports club, solicitor, employer or other organisation, you must obtain a letter of authority from the payor accepting full responsibility for the cost of any treatment.
