Ceisteanna (872)

Violet-Anne Wynne

Ceist:

872. Deputy Violet-Anne Wynne asked the Minister for Health the reason the only treatment for persons with dry age-related macular degeneration disease, MacuShield, is not covered by the medical card reimbursement scheme in view of the fact that this mainly effects older persons; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

As this is a service matter, I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond to the deputy directly, as soon as possible.
