APPOINTMENTS & FEES

Appointments can be booked via my PA Helen Morrissey on 020 8392 4203. I am able to see patients who self-fund, as well as those covered by healthcare insurance.  I am accredited by all the major UK healthcare insurers (BUPA, AXA PPP, Cigna, Pru Health, AVIVA, Simply Health and WPA).  If you wish to claim your consultation and treatment through your insurance policy, you will need to obtain a “pre-authorisation code” from your health insurer prior to the appointment.  You will also need to provide me with a referral letter from your GP to access insurance funding. The fee for the initial consultation (£360) is payable on the day of the consultation and you will be given a receipt to claim the money back from your insurance company.  Subsequent fees will generally be invoiced directly to your insurance company, once you have given my PA full insurance details.   CHARGES

  • Initial consultation            £360       (up to one hour)
  • Follow-up consultation     £180       (up to 30 minutes)
  • Consultations that extend beyond these times will incur an additional charge of £90 per 15 minutes
  • The fee may differ should there be a pre-arranged fixed rate with your insurance company

Telephone consultations for medical advice, detailed letters or emails concerning the monitoring or treatment of a particular condition will be charged for at the following rates:

  • Telephone calls                £15         (The price will vary depending of the duration of the call)
  • Prescriptions                    £15         (You will be charged separately by the chemist for the cost of the medication prescribed)
  • Emails, sick certificates and letters according to the time required (average £25)

DAY CARE PATIENTS  If you do not attend your programmed day care therapy session/s your insurer will not pay for your day care review with Dr Bijlani and the fee for your appointment with Dr Bijlani during that period will then be charged to you at the ‘follow up’ rate.  Self-funding day care patients will be charged the usual follow-up or cancellation fees.   CANCELLATION POLICY You are required to give at least 2 clear working days’ notice to my secretary if you wish to cancel or change your appointment otherwise you will be charged for the missed appointment. Please note that most health insurance companies will not generally cover the cancellation fee and you will be liable for this. I am usually punctual but may occasionally be delayed in consultations, given the nature of the conditions I treat. If this occurs prior to your appointment, I will ensure you get your full appointment time but if you leave before waiting for 30 minutes, the full charge for the consultation will be payable by you.   TERMS & CONDITIONS OF PAYMENT In the absence of prior written agreement to the contrary, payment of our charges is required on receipt of our invoice. Failure to make payment within 28 days of the due date will result in the matter being referred to our Debt Collection Agents whose charges will be added to, and payable with the invoice debt. This may affect your personal credit rating.
