Anaesthetic Fees and Reimbursements

Group Anaesthetic Services is a partnership which sets its own fees for anaesthetic procedures. We bill our patients according to the Voluntary Code of Practice for Billing Private Patients published by The Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain & Ireland.

Some private medical insurance companies publish a similar schedule which determines the level of reimbursement offered to their customers for any given anaesthetic procedure. The companies do not determine the anaesthetic fee itself.

The majority of private medical insurance companies cover our fees, but you are advised to check whether this is the case in advance. You can always contact the Consultant for more detailed fee information. There can be differences between different insurers and also between different policies offered by the same insurer. In the event that your insurer does not cover the full fee, you will be required to pay the difference, or "shortfall".

BUPA benefit maxima have only been increased by an average of 14% over the last 19 years - the equivalent of an annual 0.7% increase. In contrast to the modest rise in BUPA rates, the government index of inflation went up 61% over this period.

In 2008, the Association of Anaesthetists surveyed its members and received more than 4000 responses. Published benefit maxima made available by BUPA and Axa PPP to its customers were on average 17% and 16% respectively lower than the median fees charged by anaesthtists in the UK. Only WPA had published benefit maxima that were close to the fees charge by UK anaesthetists.
