Thanks in advance.

Changes for patients
*Over the counter pharmaceuticals will remain outside the system. This means patients will have to pay for them out of pocket
*There will be a prescription fee of €1. Patients who not want the generic pharmaceutical prescribed, can opt to buy a more expensive brand pharmaceutical and cover the difference in price
*If there is no generic the GHS will fully cover the brand pharmaceutical
*GHS participants will not need to pay anything for medicine administered while in hospital
*The GHS will fully cover innovative medicine
*The GHS will fully cover the medicine prescribed by a doctor, even if there is a generic
*If the doctor is not part of the GHS, patients will have to pay for the medicine
*In the event of a chronic illness, doctors can give a prescription valid for six months so as not to inconvenience the patient. *However the patient can only collect a month’s supply at a time from the pharmacy.
