Competitiveness of MPF Plans

MPF continuously compares our plans with other insurers to ensure we offer our members reliable, value-for-money medical insurance. Our latest review confirms the MPF Premium Plan to be competitive when compared to plans with similar benefits from other insurers whilst the MPF Premium Plus Plan was found to be extremely competitive when compared to other insurers with the cheapest comparable plan being almost €1,000 dearer per person. If you were to purchase a similarly priced Plan to MPF Premium Plus in the open market you would have excesses of between €75 to €125 per Hospital claim and significantly reduced cover in Mater Private Hospital and Blackrock Clinic.

Covid-19 Screening and Testing fees

Some hospitals have introduced a requirement for patients to have a Covid19 test prior to admission for procedures.
Currently no agreement exists to contribute to or cover this expense but the Trustees of ESB Medical Provident Fund will review this matter at their next meeting in late July.
Members will currently need to pay this expense but should hold on to their receipts and if the Trustees do decide to apply some form of cover, it will be backdated to July 1st 2020.
