Duplicate receipts cannot be issued so ensure you carefully keep your receipts if you need to submit claims to your health insurer and/or Revenue. Valid, in-date Medical Cards cover the fees for many GP services. The following exceptions apply:
- Blood tests*
- Driving Licences – Medical and Eye Tests
- Travel Vaccinations
- Medical examinations and reports for legal purposes
- Medical examination and reports for insurance companies
- Medical examinations and/or letters in connection with fitness to take part in sports
- Pre-employment medicals & letters
- Pre-school / schools examinations & letters
- Letters or referrals other than those related to Consultants/ Hospitals
- Letters to Social Welfare, Council or similar
- Completion of miscellaneous forms
* Blood tests are covered by a Medical Card if they are done at a public hospital. If you prefer, you may attend the Phlebotomy Unit of any public hospital instead of having your bloods taken at the Practice.
If you are unsure if a fee applies, please ask at Reception at time of request.
If your Medical Card has expired, payment for your visit is required in line with our price list. The onus and responsibility for an up-to–date Medical Card lies with you, the patient. See HSE – Medical Cards for further information.
