Funding of Your Treatment

  1. Self-funding – If you are self-funding your treatment this will need to be paid for in advance of treatment commencing.  We accept most major credit cards, cash, bank transfers and personal cheques with a banker’s card.
  2. Medical insurance – If you have private medical insurance, we advise you to confirm with your insurer that your treatment is covered and get authorisation before making an appointment.
  3. Sponsored patients – If you are being sponsored by an international embassy, you will need to ensure we are provided with a letter of guarantee before your appointment to cover your treatment.
