Payments can be taken direct from insurance companies only by prior arrangement with the practice. We expect payment in full of the insurance excess be made prior to the claim form being completed and sent. Unlike other types of insurance, the debt remains the client’s responsibility until is paid in full, we will therefore keep sending statements so that the progress of the claim can be monitored from both sides.

We make a charge of £25.00 + VAT for completion of claim forms to cover administration costs. A copy of the claim form and associated invoices will always be sent direct to our clients upon completion either by post or by email.
