Below a link to the HSE information on the Drugs Payment Scheme. This scheme is available to all families.Families pay a maximum on all medications for the family of EUR144. People in the group make use of this scheme if they do not have a medical card.
One of the issues with the scheme is that there are some medicines that are not covered. Some pharmacists find ways around it so it is worth getting to know your chemist. The chemist will help you to fill in the form.
Some parents have been able to get medications approved that had been previously unapproved. If this has been your experience please contact us and let us know what happened so we can share it with the members.
