Self pay patients

We encourage people with self-pay packages and many patients will get free consultations if a package treatment is chosen. *(Not applicable on procedures which include a hospital based investigation)

Self-pay packages also reduce the hassle of calling up insurance companies for pre-approval for consultation and paying excess or extra top up charges when the insurance companies refuse to pay the full fee of the doctor.

Sometimes these scans can be done at your local optician’s facility and the scans can be forwarded to Mr Saeed for interpretation. Please ask if this is possible as it may be more convenient for you.

Mr Saeed treats patients with the following insurance companies

BUPA, WPA, AVIVA, AXA-PPP, CIGNA, Prudential health, Vitality health, Simply health

If your company is not on this list, please enquire and we will be able to make arrangements with your insurance company.

Please ensure the appropriate paper work concerning your insurance is complete including pre-authorisation when required. The level of insurance cover chosen by many patients may vary considerably. This may not always be comprehensive and may or may not cover all fees. In these cases, the policyholders have an element of shared responsibility and may be personally liable for a significant proportions of fees charged.

Some insurance companies will not pay for investigations or will not pay the full fee. In these cases you may be charged a shortfall. Ask Mr Saeed’s secretary if any charges are expected.
