Description:
The Primary Care Reimbursement Service (PCRS) supports the delivery of primary health care by providing reimbursement services to Primary Care Contractors (General Practitioners, Pharmacists, Dentists and Optometrists/Ophthalmologists), for the provision of health services to members of the public in their own community, and has executive responsibility for the Demand Led Schemes nationally. The state funded Demand Led Schemes, which include the General Medical Services (GMS) (i.e. Medical Cards/GP Visit Cards), Drugs Payment, Long Term Illness, Dental Treatment Services, European Economic Area, High Tech Drugs, Primary Childhood Immunisation, Health (Amendment) Act 1996, Methadone Treatment and HSE Community Ophthalmic Services, account for approximately 20% of the HSE’s overall budget. In 2010 PCRS handled over 75 million claim/payment transactions in respect of services provided to over 3.42 million people in their community by Doctors, Pharmacists, Dentists and Opticians, with an associated expenditure of €2.529 billion.
