Patients living in the United Kingdom have the right to choose a medical service provider in the EEA (European Economic Area) and can lawfully recover the costs from the NHS. This means that any person living in the UK can seek healthcare abroad and be reimbursed.
Since 2013, MedRefund LTD have helped the residents of the United Kingdom to complete all formalities to retrieve money spent on medical services received in Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Czech Republic and other countries of the European Union (EU). The company is cooperating with leading private clinics and hospitals which offer specialised diagnostic procedures and surgeries.
If you are waiting for an operation or any other service that is available under the NHS you can exercise your right to have your treatment abroad and MedRefund can help you to reimburse the money you have paid from NHS.
The reorganisation of the NHS and the tight budget resulted in many patients being refused treatment for conditions considered as non-emergency
Some patients are not receiving specialist consultations while others are refused treatment or are made to wait unreasonable long waiting times. You are entitled to NHS paid private treatment abroad. And you can legally “jump” the NHS queue. In order to apply for refund it is necessary to provide medical documents that provide information on patients’ condition and it is sometimes impossible to get it from GP.
In this situation, the best solution is to use the services offered by our clinic. Our specialists will diagnose the condition and prepare the documentation necessary for NHS refund application. When you have the documents, you just need to contact MedRefund and their advisers will help you to fill in the application, as well as, recommend suitable hospital or clinic where you can undergo the surgery or treatment needed.
