If you hold a valid, full GMS card, you may qualify to have your medical appliances provided or partially provided under the medical card scheme. Medical appliances cover wig/hairpiece, mastectomy bra, mastectomy prosthesis, mastectomy swimwear & mastectomy swim prosthesis. Entitlements for these products vary between local health areas. In order to purchase your products using your medical card, you will need:
1. A completed application form with the details of the product(s) required.
2. A prescription or letter for your product(s) from your doctor stating the product(s) required.
Step 1: Bring the completed application form and prescription to your local health office. If you are unsure about your local office, please call us and we can advise you. They will issue you with a Purchase Order for the product(s) that they will cover.
Step 2: Once you have the Purchase Order, enter the Purchase Order Number in the Payment Information section at Checkout to complete your purchase with us.
Once we have the Purchase Order Number, we will post out your product(s) with a Proof of Delivery slip for you to sign and return to us. This slip is needed for the HSE. If you have any queries about this payment option, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01 492 6829.
