Private medical insurance

Cobalt has agreements in place with most private medical insurance companies (large and small) to carry out medical diagnostic imaging. It is recommended that you seek authorisation from your insurance company in advance of your appointment to ensure that they will cover the cost and to find out about any excess payment which may apply.

It is very useful to us if you can make a note of your insurance policy number and your authorisation number and bring those with you to your appointment.

In some cases your insurance company will ask you for Cobalt’s ‘Provider Number’ which will help them to find our details, the most common ones are listed below, however, please do call us on 0800 138 7202 if your insurance company is not listed and we can check the details for you:
