Step 2. Analysis and Budget

Our medical team will ask you to provide as much information as possible about your condition.
They will use this information to find the correct English-speaking consultant and hospital in Barcelona and negotiate a price with them for the procedure that doesn´t exceed the HSE guidelines.

Step 3. Payment
When you agree to the price of the procedure, pay the full amount in advance.

HSE rules require the cost of the procedure to be paid in advance.
Remember the HSE have to reimburse you the cost of the procedure.

Step 4. Get Treated
We will work with you and your English-speaking consultant in Barcelona to arrange the dates for your procedure.

Once we have the dates, we will book your flight and hotel. We will meet you at the airport, and transport you to the hospital for your procedure.

Of course we won’t be with you during the procedure, but we will check in as soon as you are out from it and are on call for you.

When you are ready to go home, we will see you back to the airport and safely on your flight back.

Step 5. Get HSE Reimbursement

When you are back in Ireland, we will prepare all the documents your GP needs for your medical records and the documents the HSE need for reimbursement.

We will submit them to the HSE for reimbursement.

It takes the HSE between three and four months to issue the reimbursement.
