Insurance and Financial Information
The attendance fee for the Blackrock Clinic Emergency Department (ED) is €175.00.
During My Visit
If you have medical insurance your policy may provide you with cover for some of your treatment in the ED. However, if you do not have medical insurance, your policy does not cover all of the costs or you choose to self-pay, please find listed below the prices of the most common out-patient tests which an ED patient may undergo.
Where ED attendance charges are incurred by you, they will be capped at €595.00. This means that personally you will not be charged above €595.00 for the visit.
Some exclusions apply to this cap, such as referral to a specialist consultant, cardiac MRI and cardiac CT.
Prices listed are for guidance only. Prices not shown here can be obtained direct from the hospital by contacting our Enquiry Line team on: Freephone 1800 60 10 60
This line is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 6pm.

Will I be covered if I require admission to the hospital from the Emergency Department?
A number of policies fully cover admission to Blackrock Clinic. However, if your policy is not one of these, you may incur an admission fee for your hospital stay. This will not exceed €200 per night.
Please have your insurance details to hand when you present to the department.
You may also call our “insurance verification” team on 01 206 4421 to find out your level of cover prior to your visit (Mon – Fri, 7am – 6pm).
In the event that there is a charge per night a temporary pre-authorisation will be placed on your credit/debit card for a specified amount prior to your admission.
The debit to your card will usually be processed at the point of discharge.
My policy has an excess
Please note that certain insurance policies carry an excess per claim. If you have one of these plans then this excess will be payable in addition to the above charges.
