Will I be covered through health insurance?

At present these include Aviva Insurance Ltd, AXA PPP, BUPA, Cigna Healthcare, Pru Health, WPA, Physiotherapy Network, 3D Rehabilitation. Prior to the initial appointment, patients are kindly requested to check the conditions of their Health Insurance Policy, as the physiotherapist cannot be held responsible for any non-payment of claims. Most policies require pre-authorisation prior to your appointment and many will require a voluntary excess payable by the patient.
