At Ballymodan Family Doctors we have an all inclusive holistic approach to the provision of medical care.
All our doctors are registered with the private healthcare providers VHI, Laya Healthcare, GloHealth and Aviva Insurance. If a patient requires a procedure which is covered by their healthcare insurance the necessary forms can be completed at the surgery. The patient will always be advised that if their healthcare insurance rejects the claim for payment then the patient will be liable for the procedure.
Medical care is also available to anyone visiting from an EU country holding a valid EU health insurance card or a visitor from the UK with a valid NHS card. We require the original card which will be photocopied for the consultation.
