Paying for Treatment
Our Pricing Structure
Our top priority at Waterstone Clinic is our patients’ wellbeing, and we support our patients in every way we can. We know that paying for fertility treatments can be a worry, and it can be challenging to plan for what you will need.
Our ethos at Waterstone Clinic is to make fertility costs simple and straightforward. We package our treatments to keep the price as affordable as possible, and to be clear so you know what is included in them. We provide individual price lists that detail other services you may need and our team are always available to answer any questions you have about them and our payment policies.
Drugs Payment Scheme
Waterstone Clinic has a specialised pharmacist that you can meet at the Clinic if you have any questions about your medications.
You can use the pharmacy of your choice for your prescription. We have a visiting pharmacist from Santry’s Pharmacy in Cork and can arrange to have your medications delivered to the Cork clinic by Santry’s should you wish.
Irish residents can also access financial support for their medications through the Drugs Payment Scheme. Drugs used as part of fertility treatment are covered under this scheme. There is a maximum charge of €124 in a calendar month (paid to the pharmacy of your choice) and the balance of the cost will be covered by the government. From September 2020, the monthly charge will reduce to €114 as part of Budget 2020.
Fertility treatments such as IVF are not yet provided by the public health service, however, you can claim tax relief on your fertility treatment costs as part of the tax relief for medical expenses scheme. You can submit a Med1 form online, or forms are available from reception.
Please check your individual insurance provider for what they may cover as part of your plan. We will provide your invoices and receipts on your portal and these can be used to submit for your expenses.
