Self-funding your eye care has traditionally been the best way to achieve the highest level of choice. However, it can be very expensive. OcuPlan tries to give you a similar degree of flexibility in choosing your eye consultant and helps to minimise the cost to you while maintaining the quality.
By having some of your investigations at your local optometrist we are able to help reduce costs. We also give you the option of spreading the costs over 12 monthly instalments at no extra cost.
For a patient who sees their eye consultant privately as a self-funding patient twice per year, the consultation fees alone can be around £300. Together with the hospital investigations that can double to over £600. With OcuPlan CarePlus scheme for example the total cost for the year would be around half, at £359.88 for both the 2 consultations and investigations performed at the optometrist, that is a saving per year of nearly £300!
