Hi All, I am moving to Dublin from the US this summer with my son. I am trying to organize things now and I am having a hard time figuring out health insurance. I do not start my job until September so I need to get something prior to that. My issue is my son has a pre-existing condition and attends UV light therapy 3 times per week. From my reading he would not qualify for treatment under a private plan for five years because it is a pre-existing condition. Am I correct? Is there anyway around this? When i start working in the fall and get public health insurance does this waiting period apply within the public system? Also, worst case would I be allowed to bring him to the hospital and pay for the treatments myself? Any insight would be much appreciated. Also - I am shocked by the prices of healthcare in Ireland. I looked up the prices of the plans and the top plan would be about €3200 per year for the both of us. In the US I was self-paying €9800 per year for a bottom of the barrell plan and when I was on a plan through my job it was €8000 per year and that was with the company paying half. There were still long waiting lists and God forbid you needed to see a specialist. Thanks in advance for the help!
