How to start your treatment at Peninsula Treatment Centre

Step 1: Get your GP referral

Most insurers will require a GP referral before approving your treatment. Make sure your GP referral includes the recommended treatment and hospital of your choice.

Step 2: Call your insurer and get your pre-authorisation number

When you call your insurer, make sure you have your insurance membership number and the GP referral details ready. If you have a preferred hospital, let them know. Your insurer will give you a confirmation that your policy covers your required treatment. Keep this pre-authorisation number when you call our friendly Private Patient Advisors.

Step 3: Get your life back on track

Once you have decided you would like to proceed with your treatment at Peninsula Treatment Centre and your insurer has agreed, we can arrange your first consultation. Your specialist will discuss treatment options with you and explain any diagnostic tests you might need as part of your individual care package.
