Department of Health
Primary Care Reimbursement Service Payments
117. To ask the Minister for Health what information is sufficient for self-employed persons to provide to the primary care reimbursement service concerning their tax affairs; and if a self assessment notice of assessment without the calculations is sufficient if a person's net income is below a certain amount. [44303/15]
The Health Service Executive has been asked to examine this matter and to reply to the Deputy as soon as possible.
The Health Service Executive operates the General Medical Services scheme, which includes medical cards and GP visit cards, under the Health Act 1970, as amended. It has established a dedicated contact service for members of the Oireachtas specifically for queries relating to medical cards and GP visit cards, which the Deputy may wish to use for an earlier response. Contact information has issued to Oireachtas members.
If the Deputy has not received a reply from the HSE within 15 working days, please contact my Private Office who will follow up the matter with them.
