    My wife was referred by her GP for a mammogram and pelvic ultrasound in Beaumont Hospital. The cost was €120 for each. She was told by the nurse not to worry as "she could claim it all back" but will have to pay the whole fee up front. I don't know about this. We have a VHI First Plan Plus Level 1 policy and only 50% of radiology treatments are covered here. Is it possible that Med1 will cover the rest or just tax relief at the lower rate on the rest ? Just curious

    VHi recently introduced 50% cover for Mammograms in each 24 month period under First Plan Plus Level 1 with no excess in an approved centre. Give them a shout to see if the benefit applies to your particular plan.
