Mr Miskry’s fee for Package of Antenatal care and Delivery – £9,000

A fixed price obstetric package of care as opposed to invoicing a fee for each consultation (as in other specialities) reflects the need for 24 hour consultant availability and emergency cover, which is unique to obstetrics.

You have the reassurance that there will be no additional Consultant fees should you have any specific needs or develop a problem in pregnancy that requires more than “routine” appointments or level of care.

There is no differentiation in price for vaginal delivery or planned or emergency c section.

Package includes:

  • All antenatal consultations including “mini” scans carried out by Mr Miskry at antenatal appointments to check your baby’s heartbeat and position
  • 24 hour consultant availability for problems throughout your pregnancy
  • Email and telephone support
  • Consultant management of labour and delivery
  • Postnatal management of care in hospital
  • Availability for postnatal problems for six weeks
  • Post natal consultation six weeks following delivery

You will be invoiced for 50% of the fee at 16 weeks and the remainder at 32 weeks. We ask for invoices to be settled by bank transfer cheque or cash within 14 days.

 

Part care

Although generally Mr Miskry undertakes full care, we understand that sometimes patients need a shorter care package if either leaving the UK to deliver abroad later in their pregnancy, or arriving in the UK for antenatal care and delivery in the second or third trimester. In this case please contact Gail to discuss your needs and check availability for a bespoke package.

Full payment in advance will be requested from non-UK residents or late bookings.

One off antenatal consultation (not part of package of care) £250

 

Insurance companies and obstetric care

Most UK insurance companies do not cover routine antenatal care and delivery. Sometimes in the case of an emergency c section you may be able to claim reimbursement for your hospital costs and a proportion of Mr Miskry’s fee.  Mr Miskry can provide a medical report in support of your claim, and an itemised invoice/receipt for the insurance company’s published c section fee for you to submit. Please check you level of cover as each insurance company will have a maximum reimbursement level for a c section (code R1820).

If before delivery you have a known medical reason for requiring an elective c section please discuss this with Mr Miskry. He will be able to provide your insurance company with the relevant information to assess eligibility for this in advance of a planned admission.

 

International Medical Insurance for Obstetric package of care

Some international insurance companies do provide cover for pregnancy care, however often there is an annual limit for maternity cover.

If your policy is not sufficient  to cover all of your expected costs (bearing in mind the hospital costs, anaesthetist fees, blood tests and specialised scans  will also come out of this allowance) you should use your cover primarily for the hospital bill, as your insurance company may have a discounted rate agreed.

We would therefore invoice you directly as a self-funding patient,  after delivery should you have allowance left we can provide an itemised invoice listing dates of treatment in order for you to claim reimbursement.

If your pregnancy spans two membership years you may have allowance available to claim in each year, in which case we can provide an invoice at the renewal date for care up to that point. Please let us know the relevant date if this is the case.

If your level of cover is sufficient to cover all of your maternity costs it may be possible to invoice your insurer directly. Insurance companies will not pay for care in advance so we would ask for a guarantee of payment a month before your expected due date, and would invoice for the full fee after delivery ,when we can provide an itemised invoice showing dates of consultations and delivery.

Should there be a shortfall in payment from your insurer you are responsible for any fees not covered and our usual payment terms apply.

NIPT test and scan at 10 weeks

We recommend Ultrasound Diagnostic Services or The Fetal Medicine Centre and fees are payable directly to these units. Gail can provide an idea of costs but as with all tests please confirm prices with the units.
