Should you require additional cover or benefits a 2 year waiting period must be served before you can avail of the higher level of cover for any disease, illness or injury of which the symptoms began before you changed your level of cover. When taking out health insurance for the first time or if it has been 13 weeks since you last held private health insurance with an Irish health insurer, the five year *pre-existing waiting period for illnesses applies. When taking out health insurance for the first time or if it has been 13 weeks since you last held private health insurance with an Irish health insurer a 52 week maternity waiting period also applies.
