Medical Card Holders
Unfortunately not all services are covered by your medical card. When we are asked to provide an extra service which does not fall within our contract with the HSE we need to charge for this. Our time is limited and signing and filling out forms can be very time consuming.
Examples of non-GMS services for which GPs charge their medical card patients are:
- Signing passport application forms
- Certain travel vaccinations and other prescriptions for travel
- Examinations in relation to fitness to drive, including eye test
- Examinations in connection with fitness to take part in sports
- Pre – employment medicals
- Insurance & Medico-legal Examinations and Reports
- Insurance Claim form-filling and reports
- Some family planning services
- Referral for private care forms
- Letters requested by, or on behalf of, the patient
Examples of the fees involved are:
|Driving Licence Assessment/Report||€40|
|Other forms, letters and procedures are dependent on the time required.|
If you have accumulated GP fees over the course of a year there are a number of ways in which you may be entitled to money back. The four main insurers - laya, aviva, VHI and glo health all offer money back on GP visits and many of the minor surgical procedures and other services we offer can be directly billed to your insurer. Please refer to the links attached to see whats covered under your policy.
In addition if you are a tax payer, you may be able to claim a portion of your medical expenses back against your tax each year. Please refer to revenue.ie for further details.

Category: GeneralDue to the unprecedented storm expected to hit Limerick on Monday and the weather warnings from Met Eireann we are asking patients not to travel unless absolutely necessary. Our ability to provide general practice services on this day cannot be guaranteed at this point in time though we will endeavour to do so if safe. We are advised that UL hospitals group has cancelled all outpatients appointments but the Emergency department at University Hospital Limerick is open as normal and the local injury unit in St Johns will be open from 9am to 6pm.
