Insurance Recognition & Fees
We are registered with the following insurance companies.
We are happy to see patients in the Guthrie Wing at King's who are sponsored by their Embassy or Consulate. The patient will need to present a letter of guarantee for their appointment, or inpatient care, and investigations. Please telephone or email our outpatient or inpatient teams.
We will normally have to receive a letter of guarantee (LoG) for patients sponsored by their Embassy or High Commission before any consultation or treatment.
The team in Guthrie Clinic will take your payment on the day for your consultation and any investigations if needed. The patient or sponsor will be responsible for the costs of any investigations and/or cost of prescriptions recommended in a consultation.
Insured patients* - The team on Guthrie will usually invoice UK and international insurers directly. The Doctors at LondonSwissMedical may invoice some UK insurers/ patients directly. If you have an excess on your policy you should pay this on the day, or your insurer will advise you of the shortfall. If your insurer advises you of a shortfall please settle the account within 90 days.
