Making healthcare better, together

Latest news on payments and fees

Payment changes

You may start seeing an increase in separate payments to your bank account this year. This may happen if your patients are covered by insurance companies for which we provide a claims administration service. For more details click here.

We've updated our spinal injection codes

We've adopted The Clinical Coding & Schedule Development Group's (CCSD) new spinal injection codes. You'll find details of the codes and fees in our Schedule of Procedures and Fees, Important Changes section, February 2020. The new codes are also listed on the CCSD website, Chapter 3.3.

COVID-19: new ways of working

We appreciate the pressures you’re under as healthcare providers in this difficult period, and we hope you’re staying well, and safe. We’ve created new structures to support your practice and to ensure patients safely get the healthcare they need now.

To ensure patients with time-critical needs get appropriate care, we’ve set up a new Clinical Support Centre. Please listen here to a short podcast from Sarah Taylor, our Head of Specialist and Practitioner Relations, on what this means for patients.

We’ve temporarily authorised remote consultations and assessments where clinically appropriate. We know it’s currently difficult to offer treatment but we’re processing requests for recommended procedures and preparing our systems for the expected high demand for elective care when private healthcare returns to normal. 

To support the patients who need care most, we’re focusing our payment and fees teams on business critical work. This means we’ve had to suspend some of our normal query handling.

We’re also supporting our members with a new Customer Promise, which will assess and adjust for any impacts of the delays in treatment during the coronavirus crisis. This process will be overseen by an independent auditor. Please find out more here.

New credit note form

We’ve made it easier to submit a credit note or a recoup request to us (we sometimes need to recoup money if we’ve overpaid you, perhaps because an invoice was duplicated or submitted in error). Please click here to find our new credit note form, which you can also find on our Payment Support Service pages.

One telephone number to direct your queries

You asked us to make it easier to deal with our servicing teams, so we’ve launched a single telephone number for your queries. We’ve also increased the hours our teams are available to support you in person (to 9 to 5, Monday to Friday). We answer most of your queries on this website, but if you still need help, please ring 01892 503030 and follow the options. For more information on this service, please click here.
