Private Medical Insurance

If you have a private medical insurance policy in place it provides you with peace of mind when you need medical treatment. Ensure you tell your GP that you have private medical insurance in place if you need a referral and they will then be able to refer you to a private specialist at a hospital or clinic such as one of the BMI Healthcare facilities. Private Medical Insurance treatment does require pre-authorisation so remember to call your provider to check that the treatment is eligible for cover and the hospital or consultant you want to use are covered by your insurance policy.
