If you do not already have one you may need to apply for an EHIC card at European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) on the HSE website, which will cover you for any emergency care while you are traveling abroad.
If you do not have travel insurance we will organise appropriate insurance on your behalf.
Before you travel, we make sure you are aware of all the costs you are likely to incur up front.
The HSE requires you to pay the hospital first and on your return home submit an application form with all relevant back-up paperwork to secure your reimbursement.
We advise you on HSE reimbursement rates and if necessary can advise you how to secure finance from your Bank/Credit Union.
Remember the HSE does not reimburse any costs that you incurred like flights, taxis, and general out-of-pocket expenses.
Depending on your hospital and country of choice we can offer you some travel allowances to help you with your out of pocket expenses.
