Approval for Specific Medicines, Reimbursement, Reference Pricing and Interchangeability

If you do not have your IMF handy, medicines pricing and reimbursement in Ireland are complex.
There are several drug reimbursement schemes in operation (PCRS/GMS, High Tech, Long-Term Illness, Drug Payment Scheme): some drugs require approval which the doctor must obtain before the pharmacist can dispense (Dabigatran, Edoxaban and Rivaroxaban).

There is no other single place where you can access the essential information for Ireland's medicines, medical devices, vaccines and nutritional products.
