Long-Term Illness Scheme
Source - Department of Health & Children
In the past if a child has a single diagnosis of autism they were not eligible under this scheme. However, people with a diagnosis which includes intellectual disability may claim for drugs required for the condition. It has come to our attention that many people with autism who have not received a Medical Card have successfully applied for a Long Term Illness Card. It is useful for medical items e.g. if your OT recommended a special chair to help with posture they might be able to purchase the chair from the long term illness budget if your child has a long term illness card.
