Private medical insurance

Bristol Vascular Access charges the standard insurer benefit maxima for all insurers i.e. there are no top-up fees. A list of insurers by whom I am recognised is at the end of this page. If your insurer is not listed please get in touch as soon as possible. Please note that you may be responsible for any fees not covered by your insurer so it is important to check that you are covered before your procedure. In this instance, the fees charged will be in line with the current benefit maxima for WPA medical insurance plus 10% and are inclusive of local anaesthetic and sedation/anaesthetist fees but do not include the hospital fees. These will be charged separately in line with the insurer contract with the hospital.
