If you have used your allocated number of benefits under your Irish Life Health insurance plan, you have an option to continue using this service directly with babylon health through a discounted Pay-As–You-Go or subscription option. Irish Life Health members who have access to babylon health on their plan can get a 20% reduction on these prices.
- Subscription €9.99 per month
- Pay-As-You-Go €29 per consultation
- Irish Life Health members get a 20% discount off both prices.
The babylon GP may ask you for these measurements if required. It may be handy to know these figures before your consultation begins but don't worry the GP can guide you on how best to calculate your BMI for example. They can also be added into the ‘clinical records’ function of the app prior to a consultation.
The person who is using the service must also have an Irish Life Health plan, with the benefit included, to use the babylon health service. So if your child is covered they can use the service under strict guidelines and supervised by their parent or guardian.
You will have to set up an account for your child. This can be done easily and quickly through your babylon health profile by:
- Open the app and selecting “settings” from the home screen
- Clicking on your “Family Account” feature
- Inputting your child’s details
- Booking an appointment through their new parallel profile
All pharmacies should accept the prescription from babylon health. If you encounter any difficulties please contact the babylon health team directly on 021 2355 755 (available 8am - 6pm Mon - Friday, excluding Bank Holidays) or firstname.lastname@example.org
