All HBOT chambers have a range of fees per treatment that depend on:
  • how many other patients are being treated at the same time
  • the particular case
  • access to the chamber e.g. lying down patients take more room than sitting and so decrease the amount of others that can be treated at the same time
  • how the oxygen is given- simple hood or mask versus oxygen via tracheostomy
  • how many treatments are given

Fees range from £50 to £300 per treatment.

A treatment course can be from 5 to 40 sessions.

Private or NHS or Self Funding

Private

The only BUPA and Private Health Insurance recognised chambers in the UK are London Diving Chamber and Midlands Diving Chamber.

For a medical issue that needs HBOT you will need to call your insurer to get them to agree to fund.
The chamber will then sort the payments out with the insurer.

NHS

After your NHS GP or Consultant has referred you to a chamber, and the chamber doctor has agreed that HBOT will help, the chamber will apply to your local PCT for funding.

It can take a long time for the PCT to agree to fund the treatment. Once they have agreed to fund, treatment will start.

Self Funding

This can be the quickest way to initiate treatment if you do not have Health Insurance.

Most chambers will make a funding plan to help you start treatment as soon as possible.
