Private Referrals

Updated on Tuesday, 23 December 2014, 1428 views

You cannot charge for referring a patient privately, however you can refer privately on a standard referral letter.  Some companies have standard forms that you can use, but you don't have to use these.  

If, following an initial referral, you are then asked for further detail by the insurance, or relevant company, you can charge for supplying this.
