Costs of sessions and payment of Fees
Unless an approved third party has guaranteed to meet your treatment costs, payment will be by you to us at the end of each session for that session.
Roundwood Health Clinic Ltd accepts all major credit and debits cards, excluding American Express at our clinics. We can also accept cash and bank transfers. Bank transfers must be made in advance such that funds are cleared before the day of treatment.
Roundwood Health Clinic Ltd has direct settlement arrangements with many insurance companies; this means we are able to invoice the insurer directly on your behalf. It will be necessary for you to supply us your full insurance details when you book an appointment otherwise you will need to pay for your treatment on the day. The insurance company may not cover all the charges so you will be personally responsible for any excess or any remaining balance. Should the insurer decline or delay payment (terms are 30 days from the invoice date) for any part of the treatment, we will invoice yourself for immediate settlement.
Your employer may agree to pay for any excess or shortfall payments but unless we have a prior arrangement with them in writing, you must settle the account with Roundwood Health Clinic Ltd in full and then recover the balance from your employer.
All outstanding accounts will attract a daily calculated interest rate of 8% per annum.
If you are late for a session
If you are late arriving at a session, the session will begin on your arrival and continue until the time when it is scheduled to end. If you wish the session to overrun, and we agree, then you may be charged at our discretion for the extra time we spend in providing the services.
Cancellations & Missed appointments
Roundwood Health Clinic Ltd have a minimum 24 hour notice policy for cancellations or to change an appointment. This means that patients who do not give at least 24 hours notice will be charged the schedule fee applicable.
If we cancel
On occasion, we may have to cancel a scheduled session. This may occur for events outside of our control such as a staff member is sick or if a preceding session has overrun. If we have to cancel a scheduled session, we will book you another appointment as soon as reasonably possible. No charge will be made to you for the session cancelled by us.
Where you have booked and paid for a course of appointments, and we have to cancel your appointments, we will refund payments on a pro-rata basis for those appointments which have been cancelled.
