Your GP and private health insurance

Do I need to tell my GP?

You do not need to tell your GP unless you want to. We will ask permission to write to your GP if we have reason to. The report will contain a brief history of your problem, our examination findings, our clinical impression, any investigation results such as x-rays and details of our treatment plan. We will send this as your GP is the custodian of your medical records and it is in your interest to have this record complete and up to date.

 

Private health insurance

Treatment at the clinic is covered by all the major private health insurers. You will need to contact them to check your policy cover is suitable. They will then either ask you to contact your GP to validate a claim or they will give you an authorisation number.  When booking please let us know the which insurer you are using and if you have it please bring along the letter confirming this so we can update our records.
