Have your say on how medical need should be taken into account in the provision of medical cards
The Government has decided to develop a policy framework for medical card eligibility to take account of medical conditions. The HSE has established an Expert Panel to examine the range of medical conditions that should be considered for inclusion in the policy framework.
The Expert Panel will identify a range of medical conditions, in priority order, that would benefit most from medical card eligibility. Contributions are now being sought from the public, patient representative groups and professional bodies, to inform the work of the Expert Panel.
