Migrants to be charged at 150% for secondary care from April

Comment

As a foreign resident visiting family in UK I had coverage....my daughter broke her arm and required X-ray and cast putting. We informed the hospital we had coverage and our insurance company were ready to pay..... The hospital informed us it was too difficult to process it and did not charge us..... The rules may change but unless the hospitals and surgeries have the means to collect and process payments tHis will be meaningless.
