Aurora Healthcare - Private Treatment Funding Options

Getting stressed or anxious about how you will pay for your healthcare is the last thing you need at a time when your wellbeing is paramount.

We work with key partners to simplify the process of funding both Specialist Gynaecology and Fertility treatments, to ease this burden.

Aurora Healthcare provides the following funding options for gynaecological operations:

  • Insurance Company Funding (insured patients)
  • Prepayment Plan (uninsured patients)
  • Chrysalis Finance Low-Cost Payment Plan

We would be happy to discuss the details with you.

 

Insurance Company Funding (insured patients)

Aurora Healthcare is recognised by major health insurance companies in the UK and is pleased to accept clients with such policies for gynaecological investigations and treatment (including surgery). Clients might need to pay a shortfall for their operations, depending on the type of insurance policy they have and the procedure undertaken; we will advise if this is likely to be the case. 

 

Prepayment Plan (uninsured patients)

Clients have the option to fund their gynaecological operations themselves by lump sum payments, via bank transfer or credit card. Aurora Healthcare provides comprehensive packages that cover all aspects of the treatment and means clients would not be exposed to additional charges from the hospital.

 

Chrysalis Finance Low-Cost Payment Plans

Aurora Healthcare has partnered with Chrysalis Finance (regulated by the FSA) to provide low-cost gynaecological surgery payment plans, to assist clients in spreading out the cost of their treatment to make it manageable. The process for this is explained below:

You can borrow between £350 and £50,000, subject to status. You must be over 21 to apply.
