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, as it is challenging to plan for what you will need.
Our ethos at Waterstone Clinic is to make costs simple and straightforward. We package our treatments to keep the costs as affordable as possible and clear so you know what is included in them. Our team are always available to detail the costs of your individual treatment, as well as our price list and payment policies.
If you would like to access finance for fertility treatment, we recommend Avantcard for personal loans as they offer a low rate for medical expenses, the application is private and fully online, and you can set the loan amount and repayment schedule.
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.
Drugs Payment Scheme
Waterstone Clinic has a specialised pharmacist that you can meet at the Clinic if you have any questions about your medications.
We recommend Santry’s Pharmacy in Cork as they are specialists for fertility medications. We can also 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.
