Hi ladies, I'm going public in St. Lukes in Kilkenny however I do have health insurance but just wondering when i'm admitted to have the baby do i use this??? Or just be admitted as a public patient???

You don't have to use it. I have it also but never changed up to the family plan (you have to change at least a year before you give birth in order to be covered) so it's no good to me anyway. Also it will only cover so much so you still end up wit a big bill. I would say just be admitted as a public patient!

Your best bet would be to contact Quinn and see what you are covered for. I am sure you could probably get a semi-private room which they would cover. I am not sure why you'd have any bill from St. Lukes for your maternity, private or public??? You pay the consultant if you are private and your health insurance pays the accommodation (unless of course, you don't have any health insurance). I am sure if you intend using your health insurance for accomm purposes, you would need to tell the hospital in advance.
