HSE Cross-Border Scheme Available to December 2020
Great News for All HSE Waiting List Patients!
Dr Callanan and Zen’s Practice Manager Zeeola, attended a meeting last week with Tanaiste Simon Coveney. The meeting, which was about navigating Brexit, provided the opportunity for Dr Callanan to ask for clarity, on when the Cross-Border scheme might end. The Tanaiste confirmed that while the UK is leaving the EU in March 2019, there would be a transition period until December 2020. During this transition period there would be no change to the cross-border healthcare relationship.
This is great news for any children on the HSE waiting list for braces, as they can continue to come to Zen for their treatment under the Cross-Border Scheme. All patients need to do, is book in with Zen and contact the HSE to claim the money back. More details can be found on Zen’s dedicated HSE page.
