 How Health Insurance Works 

Dr Murnane is registered with all main insurance companies.

    • You must be a member of an insurance company for more than 6 months, or have switched insurance companies without a lapse in insurance cover.
    • If the condition is NEW, i.e. a recent condition (within the last few weeks).
    • If the procedure is listed by your insurance company and your insurance is valid. Then the insurance company will pay Dr Murnane directly.
    • You are responsible for your consultation fees, any x ray fees and technical fees associated with sedation.The cost of the actual treatment(professional Fees) are paid by your insurance company.
    • You will be asked to sign an insurance form and supply your membership details

Your insurance will not cover the cost of your consultation, radiograph or technical fees associated with sedation.

VHI and other insurance companies do NOT cover the cost of simple or routine dental extractions. Only surgical extractions

are covered. VHI and other insurance companies view this as a surgical procedure, not dentistry. 




If you have valid health insurance:

    • Treatment under local anaesthetic (Dental Injection ) only is €150
    • Treatment under Sedation and local anaesthetic combined is €230
    • Radiograph fee  €60,  (if you have your own radiograph please bring it with you)

Many patients find dealing with their insurance company confusing as they are often given incorrect and misleading information when they make phone enquiries regarding cover for specific procedures. Our reception staff will be happy to contact your insurance company to clarify your cover if required.

If You Have No Health Insurance cover you will pay the full cost of your treatment before treatment is carried out.
