  • 30.5.2014 NAI welcomes decision on discretionary medical cards - New Web Site
    the decision of the Government todevelop a mechanism to award a medical card based on medical need rather than the current situation where a medical card is awarded solely on financial considerations The NAI has long campaigned to highlight the critical need for medical cards among people with neurological conditions as a vital passport to a range of community services and supports which cannot be accessed without a medical card regardless of means Therefore not only is lack of a medical card a source of financial hardship but also an effective bar to accessing essential services and represents an inequity in current service provision The NAI highlighted this situation and the added impact of withdrawl of medical cards in a presentation to the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health and Children in February Our nationwide survey published in March showed that 42 of respondents had had their medical card withdrawn NAI was among the first charity to present evidence of numbers affected by the probity review The NAI urges the Department of Health to engage in a public consultation process in the development of the new legislation Quick Links About Us Aims What We Do Board Staff Resources NAI Documents Guidance
