Do you have private health insurance?


Private Health insurance

Afshan O'Sullivan is a registered provider with ​Bupa, AXA PPP, Pruhealth (Vitality), Cigna, AVIVA, WPA and Simply Health. If you have private medical health insurance with these companies, you are advised to contact them ​​​ before you book an appointment to obtain a pre-authorisation code for speech and language therapy.  In the case of insurers which are not listed please contact her directly.

Paying for treatment yourself: Self-pay

If​​ you do not have private health insurance that covers the cost of assessment or therapy then you will be responsible for paying for treatment yourself. You will know the cost of treatment prior to booking an appointment via email or your initial telephone consultation. Sessions will only be booked once you have consented to therapy.
It is your responsibility to ensure full payment is made whether you are insured or not.
