How to Claim for a Hospital Visit

Are you going for a day-case or longer hospital stay? Here’s how to claim for your hospital visit.


1. Before you go to hospital

Call our team on 01 562 5100 to confirm your cover. Remember to have the following details to hand:

 - Hospital name
 - Consultant name
 - Procedure code - you can get this from your consultant's secretary


2. During your stay

Just let the hospital know that you have health insurance and complete a claims form. Your plan may have a hospital excess which you can pay directly to the hospital.


3. After your stay

You don’t have to do anything – we pay the hospital directly!
