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. In 2009 over 2.69 million people used the services of Primary Care Contractors for which reimbursement was provided by the PCRS. Over 73 million transactions, with an associated expenditure of more than €2.642 billion, were processed by PCRS during the year. With the current national and international economic climate it is anticipated that demand on these services will continue to grow.
