How much does it cost to see a doctor in Ireland?
This is a common question we hear as prices can vary from county to county and clinic to clinic. Depending on the clinic practice, prices for standard GP visits can range from €45 to €70. Most Limerick doctors charge €50 to €60, which is the country average.
Fees only apply if you are a private patient. If you have a medical card, then public health services, including doctors visits, are free. A GP Visit card also covers visits to your doctor.
Additional services provided by your Limerick doctor, such as blood tests, scans or pain therapy may incur additional charges.
About Medical Cards and GP Visit Cards
Medical Cards are issued by the HSE when your income is lower below a certain level. For more information or to apply for a medical card, see medicalcard.ie. As well as doctor appointments, some prescriptions are covered on a medical card.
A GP Visit Card is also issued by the HSE. It is available to children under six and adults over 70 without means-testing. All other age groups are means-tested. A GP visit card only covers the cost of your doctor’s visit.
