Payment Options

Insurance

All patients are strongly advised to contact their insurers prior to attending the clinic to check their insurance cover for procedures in the Bon Secours Hospital, Cork.

All patients must present accurate medical insurance information. The hospital will file the insurance claims, but the health insurance is a contract between the patient and the insurance company. However, it is the patient's responsibility to see that our fees are paid in full in a reasonable timeframe. The amount your insurance pays is based on the policy the patient has purchased. Charges can vary depending on your planned procedures and/or insurance cover. Please call us in advance to confirm charges, which may be payable on the day.

Mammogram, ultrasound and consultant surgeon fees are payable on the day you attend. These expenses can be submitted as part of your outpatient claim to your insurer.

Should you require a biopsy or fine needle aspiration, this may be covered directly by your insurer depending on your level of insurance cover.
