I wish to inform the Deputy that the LTI scheme will be included in the review of the current eligibility framework, including the basis for existing hospital and medication charges, to be carried out under commitments given in the Sláintecare Implementation Strategy. It is expected that all relevant stakeholders will be consulted in the course of that review.
