Private Medical Insurance
Most health schemes will cover Foot Surgery, non-surgical Podiatry consultations and chiropody treatments. Many health insurance companies will pay for the consultations for Gait analysis.
Fitter Feet for Life's reception staff can advise you how to make your insurance claim. Please call them with your policy number to hand and they will do their best to make sure you comply with your insurance policy requirements.
Most health insurers insist you contact them before making an appointment. Often they will ask for a GP referral letter to be sent prior to your first consultation. You can download an example referral letter to take or send to your GP. (Depending on your PDF software, you may be able to fill in your personal detail on your computer. Otherwise simply print it and fill it out.) Some Insurance companies give you an authorization number so that we can send our invoices directly to them.
Otherwise, you can book an appointment directly with us, and we will provide you with a receipt for your treatment here to send to your insurers. Do check this is all right with your insurers first.
In some cases you may need to pay an excess on your insurance policy; we would strongly recommend that you consult your insurance policy prior to commencing treatment with us if you intend to claim your expenses.
