Prescription charges


I have a medical card but I seem to be paying more than the monthly cap for prescription charges for my family. Why would this happen and how can I get a refund?


If you have a medical card, there is a charge for each prescription item you receive. The prescription charge is €2.50, up to a maximum of €25 per month per person or family. For medical card holders over the age of 70 there is a reduced prescription charge, from 1 March 2017, of €2 per item up to a maximum of €20 per month.

Usually your pharmacy keeps records of how much you have paid in prescription charges and makes sure that you do not pay more than the limit each month. However, you may use different pharmacies in the same month, or your family members may not

By Bill Sones and Rich Sones, PhD

Q. In the late 1600s, French King Louis XIV complained that he was losing more territory to his astronomers than to his enemies. What, by Jove, did he mean?

A. In 1610, using a primitive telescope, Galileo discovered several of Jupiter’s moons. Io, the closest, orbits the planet very regularly, about once every 1.8 days. Anyone observing Io from anywhere on Earth sees it eclipsed by Jupiter at the same time. So observations of Io allow accurate synchronization of time measurements between distant places. For example, if one had the expected eclipse times for Paris, then these could be compared to local eclipse times to estimate longitudinal distance from Paris. In fact, this was the most accurate way of estimating longitudinal distance in the 1600s.

King Louis XIV, seeking to make his country the world leader
