Apply Online Now For A Drugs Payment Scheme Card
The HSE’s National Medical Card Unit, PCRS has launched a new centralised Drugs Payment Scheme (DPS) service.
This new service allows people, for the first time, to apply online at www.hse.ie/dps for the Drugs Payment Scheme.
New DPS application forms have been developed, in conjunction with the National Adult Literacy Agency. Forms are available at GP surgeries, community pharmacies, Citizens Information Centres and can be downloaded from www.hse.ie/dps
Under the Drugs Payment Scheme, a person and their family pay a maximum of €134 in a calendar month for approved prescribed drugs, medicines and certain appliances in that month.
GPs and community pharmacists have been updated about these changes and have been sent new leaflets and posters about the scheme for patients.
Hard copies of the application form should be completed and posted to:-
