Fees and Billing

The Travel Medicine Center has no outside source of financial support besides the charges that we make to patients.   The clinic provides internationally acceptable medical receipts that can be submitted to your insurance company once you get home. We accept VISA and MasterCard payments. If a patient is facing a large bill and does not have the means at hand to pay for it immediately, we can discuss other financial arrangements. Foreign residents of Nepal are requested to make payments at the time of each visit as this streamlines our bill collection process, however credit can be extended on completion of the necessary paperwork, we do however ask that  accounts are settled  at the end of each month.  If you would like to takee advantage of this facility please ask the receptionist for a form.
