Cost of Stay / Payment Method

An estimate of the cost of your admission can be provided to you by the Accounts or Admissions Office at 01-277 1400
Payment can be made in three ways:

  1. Private Health Insurance – see list of providers below
  2. Non-insured patient of the Cluain Mhuire Community Mental Health Service

Saint John of God Hospital deals directly with the following private health insurers:

  • VHI (Voluntary Health Insurance)
  • Laya
  • Aviva / Irish Life Health 
  • ESB Medical Provident Fund
  • Saint Paul’s Garda Medical Aid Society
  • Prison Officers’ Medical Aid Society
  • Non-Insured Patients

The Hospital does not run a walk-in assessment unit.


It is essential that a patient knows their level of insurance cover as all policies vary. Some policies may pay 100% of the costs; others may only pay a percentage, resulting in the patient / policy-holder incurring a significant payment upfront.

Where there is a shortfall on the policy, you will be required to pay this on admission. Your insurance company can provide details on the level of cover provided in the policy.
