Day Case (Inpatient)


ie. Scope procedure, angiogram, arthroscopy, cataract surgery etc.

The consultant will issue you with a Day Case code (this is a procedure reference). We have Inpatient contracts which differ with each Irish health insurer.

The consultant’s secretary will take details of your finance /  insurance status and ask you to call our Blackrock Clinic Freephone Enquiry Line on 1800 60 10 60, where we will advise:

Insured Patients

With your policy details, we can tell you whether you are:

  •  Fully covered (nothing to pay).
  • Partially covered (with a shortfall): We may tell you that Blackrock Clinic will waive the shortfall. If we are not able to do that, we will tell you the exact amount due.
  • Not covered – Self Pay: Please see below. 

Please Note: If your policy has an EXCESS, this is a one off payment per claim and will be asked for on admission.

Self Pay Patients

There will be two parts to the price:

  1. Professional Fees – These are for the surgeon and anaesthetist (if one is used). These costs will be given to you by the secretary.
  2. Hospital Fee – This is Blackrock Clinic’s charge. WE will advise you what this figure will be.

Please Note: Should your surgeon employ pathology or radiology services during your procedure, you will later receive an invoice for reporting fees relating to this. This will be issued by a company called “Hospital Accounting Services”. 

Non – Irish insurance

 Some insurers will issue a “Guarantee of Payment” (GOP) in advance of your admission. This may cover all costs, or only the Hospital fee. Please refer to your insurer regarding this.

Without a GOP:
