HEALTH SERVICES (DRUG PAYMENT SCHEME) REGULATIONS 2017

These Regulations provide for a reduction in the monthly co-payment threshold, to €134 in any calendar month, for approved prescribed medicines or other items supplied under the Drug Payment Scheme.
These Regulations ensure that, where expenditure on approved prescribed medicines or other items supplied under the Drug Payment Scheme exceeds €134 in any calendar month, such expenditure is calculated by reference to the relevant price or reference price of the item, as defined in the Health (Pricing and Supply of Medical Goods) Act 2013.
These Regulations revoke the Health Services (Drug Payment Scheme) Regulations 2012 (S.I. No. 526 of 2012) and amend regulation 6 of the Health Services Regulations 1972 (S.I. No. 88 of 1972).
