QuickCare - Minor Injury & Illness Centres
Introducing QuickCare, a new urgent care benefit available to all laya healthcare members aged 12months+, giving them rapid access to a new network of minor injury and illness centres that offer the latest in diagnostic services.
We are partnering with two world-class providers: Affidea ExpressCare centres and MyMedical Urgent Care centre, who will launch an exciting new network of walk-in minor injury and illness centres across Ireland. Urgent-care centres are now open in the Elysian Cork, in Tallaght Cross East, Dublin 24 and in Cherrywood Business Park, Dublin 18.
The new QuickCare benefit covers consultation and treatment of a wide range of minor illnesses and injuries in approved centres including minor burns, sports injuries, fractures and sprains or possible breaks. Treatment will also be available for minor illnesses including fever, rashes and infections.
Subject to their level of cover, members will be covered up to €375 per visit in direct settlement to cover an ‘urgent care’ consultation and related treatment in approved minor injury and illness centres.
QuickCare benefit was introduced to all laya healthcare schemes in January 2018.
