How To Claim
If you require Emergency Assistance, please click here.
Medical Insurance providers are judged on how they service a claim. After all, this is why the cover has been purchased in the first place. We know this and we are committed to making the process as simple and painless as possible for you. We will always endeavour to either pre-approve your claim directly with the treating facility or, if you choose to ‘pay and claim’, settle claims within 5 working days of their substantiation.
Inpatient Claims and Claims likely to exceed €1,000
Please obtain our prior approval as soon as reasonably possible, but at least 7 days before treatment. This will enable us to pre-approve your claim so that you don’t have any nasty surprises and we can guarantee costs directly to a hospital so that you don’t have any out-of-pocket expenses. Please note that all non-emergency claims likely to exceed €1,000 are required to be pre-approved by us. This ensures that we can validate your claim, to provide maximum peace-of-mind, and ensure you don’t have any out-of-pocket expenses.
Once you become aware that you need to make a claim against your policy please call us for the appropriate claim form; or you can download one from here:
Please return this with proof of your loss, detailing the dates, nature and cost of the illness and the treatment prescribed and provided, with original receipts, as soon as reasonably possible.
