Inpatient Admission

In the event of admission to the Mater Private hospital directly from Urgent Cardiac Care, the level of cover will vary depending on your insurance policy and the treatment required. As insurance cover varies between different plans, please have your insurance details to hand.  You may also call our insurance cover line on 01 885 8856 to verify your cover prior to your visit (Monday-Thursday 8am - 5pm and Friday 8am - 4.30pm)

Prior to admission your insurance will be verified and any cost and options will be discussed with you  by our admissions staff. Please note when attending out of hours, insurance verification and payment details are addressed the following day (with the exception of weekends).

To secure payment, credit/debit card details will be needed but no payment will be taken until the point of discharge.

Insurance Information

Waiting period: This is the period of time imposed by your insurance company during which you may have limited or no cover.  The timeframe of the waiting period will depend on the type of waiting period applied to your policy. 

Shortfall is the difference between the full price and that which your insurer covers. It is the amount the policy holder is liable to pay. A Shortfall is normally applied on a per night or per procedure basis.

Policy excess is the amount of money that you pay towards your hospital bills before you can claim back from your insurer. This is a once off payment that is normally applied on a per admission basis.

 

We strongly recommend that you confirm this information with your insurance provider prior to attending in order to avoid any unexpected costs relating to your care.
