Birmingham Thoracic Services has a common fee structure.

Self-paying and insured patients welcome.

Private Medical Insurance

Birmingham Thoracic Services provides treatment to patients who hold policies with most major Private Medical Insurance (PMI) providers. Insurance companies require a GP referral letter to be completed before they will consider funding any treatment. Companies then normally request completion of a claim form by consultants or GPs, for which some GPs make a nominal charge. You are reminded that the patient remains liable for any fees incurred that are not covered in full by their insurance.

Paying For Your Own Treatment

Growing numbers of people are opting to pay for their own treatment because it is fast, more affordable than people think and convenient. For outpatient consultations we are only able to accept payment via cash or cheque, which will be payable at the time of the consultation.

Quotations can only be given once a consultation has taken place and your individual treatment needs have been identified. We will then provide you a written quotation with details of what is and what is not included in the price. For conditions requiring surgery or endoscopic therapy, BMI Healthcare Option packages offer you the peace of mind of knowing, in advance, exactly how much your treatment will cost. After seeing your consultant and having had your personal needs identified, you will be given an inclusive, fixed price quotation. This will detail exactly what is, and isn't, included in the price.
