At Nova Healthcare and The Leeds Gamma Knife Centre, we welcome all private patients, whether you have health insurance that will cover your treatment, or if you wish to pay for your treatment yourself.
At your first appointment you’ll need to declare whether you intend to pay for your treatment yourself or provide us with your insurance details, and we’ll work with your insurers to pre-authorise any treatment on your behalf.
Every single cancer patient is different and we tailor each individual treatment plan to the precise needs of the patient. This allows us to offer the best treatment possible for each person. The variety of treatments on offer and the different needs of each patient mean that it is difficult to provide an estimate of cost until a treatment plan has been drawn up by your consultant.
Please note: as of 1 May, Nova Healthcare will no longer be accepting cash payments for any procedures, including consultations, diagnostics tests and treatment.We accept payments by cheque or bank transfer. Payment must be received in full prior to admission. More information can be found here.
For more information, please contact us.
If you are paying for your treatment yourself you will be asked either to pay in full at the start of your treatment, or a deposit followed by an invoice at an agreed time (usually at the end of your treatment).
Once your treatment plan has been arranged, we are able to provide package prices for radiotherapy treatment. Estimated costs for chemotherapy, daycare and consumables can also be provided.
If you are insured it is essential that you check your insurance is valid for the treatment your are undergoing. You should contact your insurer to inform them of your forthcoming treatment with us and request a claim form or pre-authorisation letter be sent to you.
Nova Healthcare has direct settlement arrangements in place with all major UK private medical insurers and will invoice them directly for the treatment you receive. The amount of cover provided by each insurer is different and it is important to check the terms and conditions of your policy prior to consultation or treatment.
