Step 3: Pay for Your Healthcare Services

Once a specialist reviews and accepts your case, your patient services coordinator will provide you with a cost estimate and deposit information or confirm your insurance/embassy coverage.

 

Financial services assistance will be available to assist you with understanding your cost estimate, providing payments, verifying insurance or embassy coverage and reconciling your final bill.​

Once a deposit has been received or payer information has been confirmed, your patient services coordinator will send you a letter confirming your appointment with the name of your doctor, the date, time and location of your appointment and any other important information you need before traveling.
