First appointments will always be face to face, but after an initial face to face consultation, many patients find it more convenient to have a telephone follow-up consultation.
In this scenario the major insurance companies will still cover costs of private care.
If insured, you should seek authorisation for a “Follow-up consultation”. You should inform your insurer that the consultation will be remote (telephone).
The maximum cost will be the same as a clinic consultation (face to face) as shown in Fees and charges.
The consulting time and administration involved is the same as for a clinic consultation. I will write a report as normal to you and your GP (and other clinicians as required) following the consultation.
