WPA Private Medical Insurance

The Foot and Ankle Centre work with a number of major private medical insurance companies including WPA.

What you need to know:
• The Foot and Ankle Centre are happy to accept self-referrals.
• Your insurance provider may require a GP/Consultant referral prior to attending.
• Contact WPA if you have any doubt regarding your policy coverage prior to attending. The Foot and Ankle cannot speak to your insurance company on your behalf.
• In all cases through WPA, The Foot and Ankle Centre will bill your insurance company for each consultation. It is your responsibility to inform WPA prior to each consultation.
• If WPA fail to cover your consultation fees, The Foot and Ankle Centre will send you an invoice.

Things not covered
• Unfortunately, WPA do not cover dressings, medication or medical devices such as orthotics and splints. Your Podiatrist can discuss if self-pay fees apply

Obtaining an Authorisation Code
• Prior to attending your appointment though WPA, please ensure that you gain a pre-authorisation number from your insurance company and understand how much your policy excess should be by calling WPA on 0345 122 3100.
• Find out your policy excess and what appointments are covered.
• Below we have given the provider numbers of our podiatrists who are registered with WPA, as well as the procedure codes that you will need to give them to obtain an authorisation code.
• We strongly recommend that you request all of our podiatrists be included on your policy as you may see multiple practitioners during your episode of care.
• If your private medical insurance claims are unsuccessful or treatment is refused by your private medical insurance company, you (the patient) would be liable for all costs. Please ensure that you have pre authorisation prior to attending an appointment, and understand what type of appointments are authorised to avoid unexpected bills.
