The Cross Border Directive (CBD) allows patients to travel abroad for necessary surgery and then be reimbursed by the HSE. Charter Medical’s patient pathway provides a doctor-lead means of accessing the CBD, a non-co-payment element, and a guarantee that the patient will receive the full amount of the procedure cost. To access this service Charter Medical has partnered with Ramsay Health Care UK, the 4th largest hospital operator in the world.
We have designed a pathway for patients travelling abroad:
Charter Medical guarantees that there will be no additional fees for the patient above those refunded by the HSE. The patient will be required to pay the hospital directly but will be refunded the cost of the procedure by the HSE.
This service is available to patients 18 years and over.
