.Jump the NHS waiting list – go abroad and in some cases, you get a refund from NHS. If you were on the waiting list and required surgery, you could be eligible for a refund if your health condition worsened during your travel within the EU/EEA or Switzerland, leading to the need for medical attention. Certain clinics across Europe have agreed to admit NHS patients with the S2 form following Brexit. To obtain the S2 form, you will need to undergo a private consultation with a surgeon in Italy (either online or in person). Once the consultation is complete, we will handle the remaining process, and the NHS is expected to grant travel permission within 4 weeks. Subsequently, you will be placed on the clinic’s waiting list, and treatment is typically scheduled within 3 months, depending on your health condition.
If you live in the UK you can access treatment abroad
If you reside in the UK, you have the opportunity to reclaim the expenses incurred for treatment received in Europe. MedRefund LTD assists United Kingdom residents in completing all necessary procedures to plan and recover the funds spent on medical services obtained within European Union (EU) countries.
Every legally residing individual in the UK possesses the right to choose a medical service provider not only within the UK but also in any other EU nation. When receiving treatment outside of the United Kingdom, its residents hold the entitlement to recuperate the expenses for healthcare if it was either an emergency or deemed necessary.
UK residents can access emergency and essential treatment abroad, thereby bypassing the NHS waiting list, and subsequently claiming reimbursements from the NHS. The amount refunded by the NHS varies based on the nature of the treatment and the country where the treatment was administered. Within Europe, medical service costs are generally lower than in the United Kingdom, even within private healthcare facilities.
Applying for an NHS refund after treatment
To apply for a refund after Brexit, you would have to undergo surgery first. Usually, those are situations when a person is let down by NHS so much that their medical condition has deteriorated during their travel to the level when pain is unbearable and the person wants to return to normal life.
Receiving treatment abroad in a private clinic
Many private clinics abroad offer significantly shorter waiting times compared to the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK including diagnostic tests of surgeries. This can be especially appealing if you require urgent medical attention or want to avoid lengthy waits for elective procedures. In many cases cost of medical procedures in private clinics abroad can be more affordable than in the UK, even when factoring in travel and accommodation expenses. At Medrefund we we cooperate only with healthcare providers that are reliable and have proven themself in the field of medical tourism. Clinics and hospitals abroad do understand the differences and concerns of patients from the UK. We always will offer you more than one destination as we believe in freedom of choice and will support you both before and after treatment. All clinics and hospitals we cooperate with have policies in place when there are complications because medicine cannot work with 100% success rate, and if there is a clinic that claims it, they are probably not being honest.
