Private Healthcare

Postby MikH-D » Tue Apr 01, 2014 11:33 am

So I must admit I am lucky, my husbands new job covers me for private healthcare eg. A certain amount for test and appointment. How much would you guess to cost for a appointment to see if I have lupus as gp thinks this maybe the case I just want to know if I would have anything to pay ontop before I request referral and am not full covered

It might be worth contacting the private healthcare provider to see if they have a number of clinics that they refer people to, and contact them for an idea about the costs involved in the investigating/dx~ing process for a condition. Or even have a look yourself for clinics in/around where you are and contact them to see what it would cost.

I personally wouldn't like to have a guess as we don't all follow the same paths when being investigated. Some may need additional tests, scans etc compared to others, which could all have a bearing on the final cost.

I agree, different healthcare providers will have different scales and you would need to know how much cover you have under your husbands policy so give them a call and then you can decide what you want to do
