Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee that you will be offered accommodation of your choice during your stay.
Click to see a number of questions for your insurer that we have prepared that may help clarify your Maternity cover. It is important that you use this guide as you will be billed personally for any outstanding costs not covered by your insurer.
Accommodation rates may increase on 1st January of each year and there is also a possible yearly increase in medical fees on the 1st July. The price charged will be applicable to the rate at time of admission.
In addition, delivery, anaesthetic, pathology and radiology consultant fees will be payable where applicable. Most policies will cover these fees but again we would advise confirming cover with your insurer.
Health insurance companies cover a three night stay or five nights for caesarean section. If it is medically necessary for you to stay longer than that should be covered, although you will need to check what accommodation would be covered by your insurer.
After the birth of your baby whatever method you choose, don’t forget that you can add your baby to your policy straight away.
