You may be eligible for a Doctor Visit Card ie FREE Gp visits .
The government has expanded the number of people and families who can access a Doctor Visit Card based on income.
If you did not qualify before you may very well qualify now .
The first expansion has already begun – with more people in higher incomes qualifying again after November.
It is always worth applying – and see if you qualify – you could very well be surprised as many daily expenses can be put against your gross income- see link below .
The goal is to make Free Gp Care accessible to everyone below the median income level.
In general Medical Card and Doctor Visit cards can be applied for on line or you can download a form and fill it out for posting to HSE .
