Cover towards the cost of treatment in an Irish Life Health approved minor injury clinic is available on all Irish Life Health hospital plans. Minor injury clinics give rapid access to efficient and convenient treatment and advice on minor injuries including sports injuries such as fractures and dislocations; and illnesses such as fever and infection.
Irish Life Health will pay the minor injury clinic directly up to the amount detailed on your table of cover for each visit. This includes cover towards the initial consultation and, if deemed necessary the following treatments related to the initial consultation: x-ray, stitching, full cast, temporary cast, splints and crutches. For example members on the BeneFit range of plans will be covered 70% up to €200 per visit. Check your level of cover here.
There is a new network of walk-in minor injury clinics opening across Ireland. Our approved minor injury clinics are currently in Dublin and Cork including Affidea ExpressCare and MyMedical Urgent Care.
Available to all Irish Life Health members on all hospital plans from 1st August 2018
Please note: any additional amount owed should be paid by you to the minor injury clinic. This amount cannot be claimed back under out-patient, day to day or any other benefit on your plan.
