Chronic Migraine and Medical Card Eligibility
Important! Chronic migraine sufferers please take this short HSE survey on medical conditions and medical card eligibility. MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD:
The Government has decided to develop a policy framework for medical card eligibility to take account of medical conditions.
The HSE established an expert panel to examine the range of medical conditions that should be considered for inclusion in the policy framework. They will identify a range of conditions, in priority order, that would benefit most from medical card eligibility. Their focus is on chronic, life-long and life limiting conditions.
Contributions are now being sought from the public, patient representative groups and professional bodies, to inform the work of the panel.
MAI is going to make a submission to the HSE on chronic migraine, and how medical need should be taken into account in the provision of medical cards.
Please take this short HSE survey, list chronic migraine as the condition and have your say. Closing date is next Monday 30th June. http://www.hse.ie/FeedbackServer/fs.aspx?surveyid=3b2ccfcc8c84e94b44b5a001a51ceed
