Written answers (Question to Employment)

Based on the available information, the person concerned will qualify for treatment benefit as a dependant spouse on her husband's insurance record.

In order for a formal approval of eligibility to issue to her audiologist, she should complete and return a signed ME2 form to the Treatment Benefit Section of the Department in Letterkenny. The relevant form has issued to her home address for completion.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
