We work closely with the Irish Health Insurers and also welcome self-paying patients. Our hospitals have coverage with all the private health insurance companies, with some of the best coverage available amongst private hospitals across the country.
Our facilities are available to patients with health insurance, or on a self-paying basis, or a combination of both. Further details are included in the Finance section below. More detailed information about coverage with the individual insurance companies is listed below.
Before admission, please check that your policy covers the treatment you need. If your insurer does not fully cover the cost of your treatment, please discuss with us and we will look at ways to address this.
Arrangements are in place with the Health Insurers to settle your account directly.
