Excess and shortfall
You may need to pay an excess or shortfall amount before your admission to hospital.
If you're due to have an elective procedure, we'll review your insurance plan and let you know the excess or shortfall due. We'll also give you instructions on how you can pay.
It's your responsibility to ensure that your insurance cover is adequate. Always check your insurance cover with your provider.
Pay attention to any waiting periods that may be in place. A waiting period could mean you're not fully insured.
Once you've been discharged, we'll submit your claim to your health insurance provider.
If your claim is not paid by your insurance provider due to inadequate cover, the bill will be forwarded to you for payment.
It is possible to self-pay for procedures at Hermitage Clinic.
Before you contact us, please make sure you have a procedure code from your consultant. Once we have this, we can inform you of your hospital fee.
Please note, Consultant and Anesthetist fees are not included in your hospital fee. Your consultant will advise you of these fees and charge them separately.
Please note that payment is due on the day of your outpatient appointment.
We'll let you know if your scan is covered by health insurance and advise you of any self-pay costs, excess or shortfalls.
