rates and authorisation from medical aid

There are a number of vein treatments available, therefore providing a detailed quotation before a consultation is difficult.

We can however provide you with an estimate on request based on previous billing history.

You are welcome to email your request to accounts@fjr.co.za with your medical aid name, plan type and medical aid number

Please note:  Cosmetic procedures (Sclerotherapy) are not covered by any medical aid.  These procedures are payable on the day of procedure.

This estimate can be used to obtain authorisation by the patient from his/her medical aid. During the authorisation process the medical aid needs to be informed that the procedure will be performed in the surgeon’s room (important to stress to the medical aid that the procedure is not done in theatre). This estimate can also be used to obtain a quotation from the medical aid. We may help with motivational letters, if required.

finance needed?

If financial assistance is needed Medifin can be used to apply for finance, please see link www.medifin.co.za
