What Does Private Medical Insurance Cover?
Typically it covers Osteopathy delivered by Osteopaths who are registered with the governing body (General Osteopathic Council) and are registered with the individual insurance companies.
It now also covers Nutritional therapy sessions through WPA health insurance.
To our knowledge Pilates and sports massage are generally not covered.
Private Medical Insurance for Osteopathy
Which Health Insurance Covers Osteopathy
Are Osteopath Doctors covered by Insurance
Yes but it depends on your policy, it is always best to check with your provider first before booking a treatment session.
Can I claim on my private medical insurance?
Yes Osteopathy is recognised through many insurance companies. At Wellthy Clinic we are registered with many insurance providers and with our governing body (General Osteopathic Council) which is a legal and insurance requirement.
Do any of the companies have limits
Yes it depends on your policy and how many sessions or monetary amount you are annually entitled towards claiming reimbursement.
Does Wellthy Clinic invoice the Insurance Companies directly or do I have to contact them ?
At Wellthy Clinic we just invoice WPA directly. All other insurance companies you would purchase your session, forward your treatment receipt and claim back directly with your insurance company.
How many Sessions can I Claim for ?
It depends on your policy and your plan, it can vary from 4-30 sessions depending on your policy. It might be after your allocation your health insurance provider will ask the practitioner to produce a treatment report in order to release more sessions. We would be willing to do this providing we feel this is necessary to continue with treatment.
Do they have to live within a certain area to be able to have treatment with you?
No we don't believe there are any geographical restrictions so if your workplace is close to New Cavendish Street in Marylebone that could be more convenient for you.
Health Insurance for Nutritional Therapist
Which Health Insurance Covers Nutritional therapy?
Our WPA Health Insurance Nutritional therapist is registered and able to deliver sessions which are covered by your WPA health insurance policy.
What does the insurance cover, is it down to specific conditions ?
Following a conversation with WPA they have suggested they will cover sessions that address a client's digestive issues like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). They may also cover other conditions which could be addressed through nutritional therapy but this depends on your individual policy.
