All our policy numbers are  8 digits long. 
If you have been provided with a number that is 10 digits long and starting with '12', this will be the membership number and will not be accepted when submitting your invoices on Healthcode.
There may be a number of reasons why your invoice is not submitting through Healthcode. An error message will usually display indications where the error is occurring. 
The error message  "Patient demographics do not match" indicates that you have provided the system with information that does not match our member database. We can check the details for your if you either email helpline@vitality.co.uk with the details you hold or call 0800 092 9400.

The following rules apply:

  • Where the same operator carries out two procedures during the same operating session, we’ll pay up to 25% over and above the maximum for the most complex procedure;
  • Where the same operator carries out three or more procedures during the same operating session, we’ll pay up to 40% over and above the maximum for the most complex procedure;
  • We will only consider payment for more than three procedures in exceptional circumstances;
  • We will only pay the fee of the primary consultant in cases where one consultant assists another;
  • Where an operator carries out two different procedures on the same day but not in the same operating session, we’ll pay up to 100% of the eligible maximum for both procedures;
  • We won’t consider paying for unbundled procedures in any circumstances.

 

Bilateral procedures:

The CCSD has specific codes for procedures that are commonly or invariably performed bilaterally. We will pay up to the fee maximum if there is a code for bilateral procedure (e.g. bilateral mastectomy), for that code only. When there is no bilateral procedure code and only where the procedure in question is not often typically, or always undertaken bilaterally, we will pay up to an additional 50% of the fee for the unilateral procedure. Where the same code is charged for twice or more in one invoice, we will only pay for one code.

Our process time is normally 10-14 working days. Invoices submitted electronically are usually processed and paid much more efficiently than those submitted by other means.
To request a fee uplift you must email practitionerqueries@vitality.co.uk with the clinical reason for fee up lift, explaining the complexity and any co-morbidities.
Vitality does not issue providers numbers, if you are a GMC registered specialist please use your GMC number.
If you are a therapist please use your name and address.
We expect any  manipulation therapy to be around 30 minutes and talking therapies around 50 minutes. On your registration form, you must stipulate the length of your sessions and what you charge.
