Notes regarding the semi-private and private options

Important note regarding your admission to hospital as a Private / Semi-Private Patient

Health insurance companies contribute towards the €900* professional semi-private fee. If you book into the hospital as a semi-private patient but choose to attend Midwifery led clinics in The NMH or in outlying areas (Bray, Greystones, Loughlinstown, Wicklow Town, Arklow) or must attend a specialist clinic (such as Diabetes, High Risk or twin clinic etc) you are liable for the same fee.

*These fees are actually €1200  but health insurance companies contribute approx €298.

An Early Transfer Home service is available to public patients only. The aim of the service is to reduce pressure on public accommodation. This service is therefore unavailable to Private and Semi-private patients.

Semi-private and private patients note that there are fees due to other consultants (paediatrics/laboratory/radiology/anaesthesia). Paediatrics/anaesthetists covered by insurance company.

Pathology balance owed depending on insurance company and policy.  

Radiology fees covered if procedure carried out during admission. Radiology fees are due if requested exams are performed as outpatients.
