Consultations and services at the Student Health Doctor and Nurse are usually free but there are charges for some of the services offered. The fees for Physiotherapy are payable in advance, on booking the consultation.

Consultations with local private GPs or Out-of-Hours Service attract a fee and students are liable for that fee.

Medical Card Scheme

Medical Cards

Only about 10% of the student body is entitled to a medical card (GMS). The Student Health Department is not a Medical Card Practice. All medical card holders should register with a Cork based GMS doctor. If you hold a medical card and attend the student health department, medication prescribed by the doctor will not be on a GMS prescription and you will be charged the full amount on presentation of that prescription to the pharmacist.

A Medical Card entitles the holder to free consultation and in certain circumstances to free prescriptions and free hospitilisation. Students are not entitled to a Medical Card unless their parents have such a card, but mature students i.e. over 24 years of age may be entitled to a card in their own right depending on income.

To apply for a Medical Card and to check eligibility please visit http://www.hse.ie/eng/services/list/1/schemes/mc/
