We are delighted to welcome patients holding a Medical Card or Long Term Illness (LTI) Card. There is no cost for our services for patients who hold these cards. However, you will be asked to provide the following:
- Referral letter from a GP (or other Health Professional)
- Your medical or LTI Card details
We will, then, be able to offer you an assessment appointment at one of our clinics conducted by a registered Orthotist/Prosthetist. At assessment, you will be advised as to the options available to you. Our treatment includes assessment and fitting consultations, the orthosis or prosthesis and any follow up appointment that may be necessary.
We will provide the HSE with a full quote for any treatment we recommend and they will make a funding decision in due course. The length of time it takes for this process varies from area to area. Each health area has its own system for referral to our service but in most cases a referral letter from a GP or other Health Professional such as a chartered physiotherapist or podiatrist is necessary.
Patients with GP Visit Cards are not covered for HSE funded treatment but can be treated privately at one of our clinics nationwide.
