Written answers (Question to Health)

The Deputy will be aware that the HSE carries out, under the Cross Border Directive (CBD), the functions of the National Contact Point for Cross Border healthcare in Ireland, including reimbursement, and must establish the entitlement of the patient to reimbursement prior to making any reimbursement.  As this is a service matter, it has been referred to the Health Service Executive for attention and direct reply to the Deputy.
