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.
Telephone or video consultation can be invoiced directly if this is more convenient for you.
So you do not need to attend King's Dr Kelly can arrange blood tests, via medichecks, these will usually be invoiced separately.
If your appointment had been booked at King's the team in Guthrie Clinic can still invoice your insurer for your consultation and any investigations done via King's; we will try to restrict you needing to come to King's if possible during the COVID19 pandemic.
The patient or sponsor will always 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 to pay this yourself. If your insurer advises you of a shortfall please settle the account within 90 days.
In-patient fees** - these are usually arranged before admission and collected via the in-patient administration team.
We have no in-patient facilities for private patients during the COVID-19 outbreak.
During the recovery from the COVID-19 outbreak The Guthrie Clinic at King's will not have new or follow up face-to-face appointments until further notice unless it is a clinical emergency.
