What to do if you have Private Medical Insurance:

If you are claiming against Private Medical Insurance, please contact your provider prior to your appointment to obtain authorisation for the appointment and to establish the level of your cover, including any excess fee, which may be charged. On the day of your appointment you may be asked to pay for the consultation in full, at which time you will be issued with a receipt. It is this receipt that you need to reclaim the fees from your insurer.

For the avoidance of doubt, Dr Hakeem’s contract is with you and not your insurance provider. The fees are ultimately your responsibility and Dr Hakeem unfortunately cannot become involved in correspondence with your insurance provider on your behalf regarding fees. Please note that some insurers require a written referral letter from your GP in order for you to make a claim. Dr Hakeem may be required to provide a short report or complete a claim form for your insurer and will happily do so for no extra charge.
