Maternity claims

Baby's hand

We pay the hospital directly

If you attend a maternity unit, the hospital will bill us directly, up to the limits on your plan. This is called a direct pay agreement. Vhi Healthcare has this in place for all maternity hospitals, so you can focus on your new arrival.

Snap & Send your claims online

Consultants' visits, scans and bloods are paid for upfront. Under your pre and post-natal care, you can claim a portion of these fees back with our online claiming system, Snap & Send. You can submit a claim 24/7, from any device, anywhere in 4 easy steps...

Exceptions... I've received a bill!

There are a small number of medical facilities that we do not have a direct payment agreement with. This is called a non-direct claim. In this instance, you will need to pay the hospital, and then submit a claim to us. Here's how it works: 

Submit a claim

Submit a completed claim form to us, signed by both you and your consultant. This is a non-direct payment form. You can send it to: Vhi, PO Box 10143, Dublin 18.

Assessment of claim

Your claim will be assessed for eligibility. Once successful, you will be reimbursed directly.

Doctors fees

Doctors' fees associated with hospital claims are paid directly by us, as is the legislative requirement.


Pregnant woman

Home births

If you are having a home birth, you will need to settle your midwife's bills directly, and then submit your receipted accounts to us with a completed claim form.

The claim form must be signed by the midwife and the account receipted. Please include a copy of your baby's birth certificate with the claim.
