Your application will be processed by our patient care team.
After we have reviewed your application, your personal patient manager will contact you confirming the next step.
Filling in our application form or contacting us does not imply any type of obligation on your behalf.
We take the hassle out of collecting all the necessary paperwork, finding the correct hospital and English speaking consultant for your procedure.
You need to get a letter of referral from your GP, or waiting list letter from your hospital.
With either of those letters we will find the correct hospital and consultant for you in Barcelona.
If your operation is an inpatient procedure, you should come to Barcelona for a pre-assessment consultation with your English speaking consultant, which we will arrange for you.
Your consultant will prepare a report that will be used in your HSE application.
Next we will work with you and prepare and submit the documents the HSE need for pre-approval.
Your application will be processed by the HSE within 15 to 20 working days.
Depending on the efficiency of the HSE, the waiting period maybe shorter or longer.
If your operation is a daycase procedure you can come directly to Barcelona without a pre-assessment consultation.
Under HSE rules and the EU Directive requirements, you will pay for the procedure in advance and HSE MUST reimburse you.
We will arrange all your flights, accommodation, meet you at the airport, and transport you to and from all your appointments
When you arrive we will meet you at Barcelona airport.
Transport you to your hospital and introduce you to your English speaking medical team.
Post procedure, we will transport you back to Barcelona airport and see you safely back onto your flight home.
We will send all your discharge documents, translated into English, to your GP so you can receive the post procedure care you need.
After you leave Barcelona, we will prepare the translation of all the documents into English so you can claim your reimbursement. If you want we can submit all documentation to the HSE on your behalf.
The EU Cross Border Directive is clear, the HSE is obliged to reimburse you without undue delay.
Reimbursement should be processed by the HSE within 20 to 23 working days of receipt of the documents.
However, the HSE say that the current wait for reimbursement is 3 to 4 months.
The HSE deal with reimbursements in date order.
If your reimbursement pack does not contain all the necessary documents, the HSE will inform you which missing documents they need and they will put your application to the back of the reimbursement list until they receive them.
We insure all the correct documents are submitted first time.
