Are you eligible for free GP visits?
This expansion will increase the qualifying financial threshold for a means tested GP visit card in two phases. From 11 September 2023, free GP care is expanded to 215,000 people aged between 8 and 69 on a means tested basis. From 13 November 2023, it will be expanded to 215,000 more people on a means tested basis.
You must already be a registered patient of the practice.
People aged up to 69 and parents of children aged 8 and up can apply for a means tested GP visit card on the HSE website. The means test assessment considers a persons or family’s circumstances, income and expenses. As well as assessing various kinds of income, a means test assessment considers personal situation, including dependent children and living situation, plus expenses such as rent or mortgage and childcare costs.
The weekly income threshold for a single person living alone increased from €304 to €361 in the first phase and will increase to €418 in the second.
The weekly income threshold for a single person living with family increased from €271 to €322 in the first phase and will increase to €373 in the second.
The weekly income threshold for a couple without dependent(s), a couple with dependent(s) or a one parent family, increased from €441 to €524 in the first phase and will increase to €607 in the second.
