Drug Payment Scheme
If you are not a medical card holder, the Drugs Payment Scheme (DPS) may be able to save you money on your medicines each month.
Any Irish resident who does not hold a medical card is entitled to apply for a DPS card. Once registered, each individual or family will only pay a maximum of €144 for prescription medicines in any one calendar month. You will receive your own unique DPS Card and Number which we will add to your record.
This doesn’t mean that you are obliged to pay €144 every month! We will keep a running total of the amount you pay for prescriptions and stop charging if your household hits the €144 mark.
For more details on how to apply for the DPS please ask us and we will be happy to help you sign up.
