There are two types of costs that people need to claim money back for:
1. Everyday medical expenses
Claims should be submitted within 3 months of the end of your subscription year.
These can be claimed through Vhi’s ‘Snap and Send’ or by completing the Day-to-Day claim form and sending it to: Vhi, Po Box 11530, Dublin 18.
2. Hospital Visits
The majority of these claims are settled directly between Vhi and the hospital. If you attend a non-direct hospital you will need to complete a Hospital Claim Form.
