If you live in the ROI you can access treatment abroad

If you live in the ROI, you may retrieve the money you have spent on treatment received in Europe. MedRefund LTD helps the residents of the EU and EEA to complete all formalities to plan and retrieve money spent on medical services received in countries of the European Union (EU).

Every person legally residing in Ireland has the right to choose a medical services provider in any other EU country as well. When receiving treatment outside Ireland its residents have the right to retrieve the money spent on healthcare if it was an emergency or necessary.

The residents of the ROI may get emergency and necessary treatment abroad – jump the HSE waiting list as well, and retrieve funds from HSE. The refunded amount that the HSE would pay depends on the treatment and the country where the treatment is received. In many European countries, the prices of medical services are usually lower than in the Ireland private sector even in private healthcare facilities. By using our services you could get your treatment sooner.
