MedCare - Medical second opinion

We’re delighted to offer access to a Medical Second Opinion service from MediGuide. If you or someone in your extended family (children, spouse/partner, parents, spouse/partner’s parents) becomes seriously unwell, you can have an independent review of your diagnosis from one of a range of leading medical centres around the world, including Harvard Medical School’s Teaching Hospital and London’s King’s College Hospital. MedCare is available on Protection plans started with Irish Life from 2014 onwards (excluding Simple Life Cover and Over 50s) and covers any medical condition.

Call MediGuide directly at 1800 948 350.

Remember to have your Irish Life plan number ready when you call the above line.
