Save On Medicines

At Lynch's Pharmacy we are committed to giving you the best quality of service and value for your money.
We support and provide advice on a range of medication saving schemes.

Drugs Payment Scheme

If you are an Irish resident and don't have a GMS card, you should ensure your family is registered on the DPS. Under this scheme, a family pays a maximum of €90* per month for approved medicines and appliances per calendar month. To apply ask a member of staff for an application form. (You will need your PPS number.)

* Subject to change by The Department of Health.

For more information on the drugs payments scheme, get in contact with Lynch's Pharmacy today.

General Medical Card (GMS)

Currently prescriptions drugs and subscriptions are subsidised for those who hold medical cards – some prescription charges still apply.

Tax Relief on Medicines

When you spend more than a set amount on certain medical expenses, you are able to claim tax relief. Most of the cost of your prescribed medication can be claimed against your tax. At the end of the tax year, Lynch's Pharmacy can provide you with a print out of all your dispensed prescriptions. Simply present this with your completed MED 1 form in your tax return. Glucometers for diabetics and gluten-free food for coeliacs are also tax deductible. Many other medical expenses attract tax relief including Doctors and Consultants fees. For more information see the Revenue information leaflet -Taxation and Medical Expenses or contact your local tax office.
