IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS INSURED WITH VITALITY HEALTH
Veincentre have negotiated separate rates with Vitality Health for all treatments. These differ considerably in price from our published self-funding fees, which are fixed cost. Please disregard our self-funding price list.
All our clinics and Consultants are Vitality recognised. We do not have provider codes for our clinics; simply quote our clinic location and they will be able to find us on their system.
How to obtain Authorisation for each Appointment:
Consultation Prior to attending for consultation you will require a referral letter from your own doctor (GP). Vitality may not authorise a consultation and scan without one. Please let Veincentre know the authorisation number for consultation and your Vitality membership number. If we do not have this prior to your appointment you will be asked to pay for this yourself.
Treatment Following your consultation, Veincentre will inform you of the treatment code (OPCS) that you need to give to Vitality in order for them to authorise treatment.
Follow-up You will need to obtain further authorisation for your follow up appointment. If foam sclerotherapy injections are required at this follow up we will advise of you the treatment code (OPCS) that you need to give to Vitality in order for them to authorise treatment.
Should Vitality not authorise the foam sclerotherapy injections, or if you would prefer not to wait for Vitality authorisation and have the foam sclerotherapy at your first follow up visit, then you will be required to pay for these yourself.
Problems getting Authorisation? If you have any problems obtaining authorisation, then please call our Head Office on 01782 753 960 with your membership number and we will endeavour to deal with this on your behalf.
