The person concerned is qualified for treatment benefits and is entitled to a range of dental, optical and medical appliance services; some of which are free and others where a contributions is available towards the overall cost.
His eligibility was recently confirmed following the updating of his 2019 PRSI contribution record. He will receive a letter within the next few days advising him of the position and confirming his eligibility for dental benefit.
The dentist can claim the payment directly on-line once the necessary treatments have been provided.
