Waiting Periods


What is a pre-existing condition?

An ailment, illness or condition where the signs or symptoms existed at any time in the period of 6 months prior to the insurance commencing.


Don’t have a pre-existing condition?

No waiting periods apply, and you can begin to claim your scheme’s full benefits right away*.


Have a pre-existing condition and want to switch to laya from another insurer?

If you switch to us on like-for-like hospital cover from another provider and have a coverage gap of less than 13 weeks, we won’t ask you to serve an additional waiting period.

If you have a pre-existing condition and want to upgrade your hospital cover when switching to us, you’ll be immediately covered on the higher level of cover for accident and injury treatments, as well as any new illnesses. You’ll also still be covered to the level of cover of your previous scheme for any pre-existing conditions during your waiting period.

Note: If you have not served all your waiting periods with your previous Irish health insurer, you can serve the remainder of them with us. We will fully recognise the length of time you’ve spent with your previous insurer.


*Waiting periods may apply on maternity benefits if you have not served them already. There is a waiting period for fertility and genetic screening benefits.
