How medical bills are paid

    • Hospital bills are the last thing you want to worry about if you're recovering from treatment. That's why we do everything we can to settle the bills directly with the hospital, so you can relax and focus all your energy on getting better.

    • In-patient and Day-patient treatment How medical bills are paid

      We can arrange a guarantee of payment letter, via our headquarters in the UK or through one of our local third party offices, to go to most hospitals around the world. This means you won't have worry about bills or make any pre-payment to the hospital when you are admitted.

      On the rare occasion that we can't pay directly, you'll need to pay the hospital and ensure you get a detailed bill that shows you have paid. You can then claim the money back from us. 

      If you should need on-going treatment please contact us to confirm that your ongoing treatment is covered, and we can advise on what happens next.

    • Out-patient treatment

      For out-patient treatment such as a consultation or medical practitioner visit, you'll normally need to pay on the day and then send us your receipt or invoice for reimbursement.

      If this is likely to be expensive, please contact us to arrange for AXA PPP International to pay the fees directly to the provider.

      The easiest and most secure way to manage your claim and stay in touch is to use Customer Online. This is where you can upload receipts and other claim information, and we even accept photographs of documents to help speed up the process. You can also set up electronic payments to get paid faster, direct to your bank account. Log in to Customer Online.

      Alternatively you can post the original, fully itemised bills, receipts or proof of payment and other necessary claim information to:
