Call for Submissions on the White Paper on Universal Health Insurance

The Department of Health has published a White Paper on Universal Health Insurance. The White Paper sets out in detail the elements of the proposed Universal Health Insurance model for Ireland. As such, it provides detail on the overall design of the model, the proposed system for deciding on the standard package of services and the financing mechanisms for the system.

This is a most fundamental reform of the health system and we recognise the importance of consulting extensively and inclusively with all interested parties. It is important to seek your views on the policy as it is set out in the White Paper, and we view this as a valuable opportunity for citizens to contribute to the development of policy on the future of their health system. Therefore, we would like to hear from any individual, group, organisation or other body that wishes to contribute to the consultation on the White Paper.
