What you need to know
This section contains all the information you need about how to pay a bill, our self-pay option if you don’t have insurance or your insurance doesn’t cover what you need, and general information on insurance – how it works, what it covers and where to call for further assistance.
For most patients, treatment costs are based on agreements with your insurer and payment will be made direct by your insurance company.
We charge for our hospital services such as nursing, use of our facilities, medical consumables etc. Our consultants – surgeons, anaesthetists and physicians – charge independently for their time and your insurer may/may not settle your bills from your consultants and us directly. In order to do this we’ll need to know:
- your insurer
- your registration number
- your scale/level of cover
- your scheme details if you are insured under a company scheme
- your pre-authorisation number for your treatment.
If you do not have sufficient cover or if there is an excess on your policy, we will ask you to pay any shortfall at check in or before the day of your visit.
Access to treatment at St. Vincent’s Private Hospital is possible, if you do not have full cover, or any cover at all. In such cases, treatment is paid for directly to the hospital by the patient.
Talk to us today about our self-pay options and to find out how to access our services.
For an estimate of these costs, please call our Finance Team on (01) 2638919 or email email@example.com
Certain medical costs also qualify for tax relief. For further information visit Revenue online.
If you live in Northern Ireland and you are currently on a waiting list for surgery or medical treatment through a National Health Service (NHS) or Health & Social Care (HSCNI) Board then you may be eligible to access treatment through the Republic of Ireland (ROI) Reimbursement Scheme. The ROI Reimbursement Scheme (formerly the European Union Cross Border Directive) allows a patient to travel to the Republic of Ireland to receive their surgery or medical treatment. Once approved by the HSCNI Board, patients usually pay for treatment themselves and can be reimbursed afterwards for approximately 50-80% of these costs.
