S.I. No. 578 of 2009.
SOCIAL WELFARE (CONSOLIDATED CLAIMS, PAYMENTS AND CONTROL) (AMENDMENT) (NO. 9) (TREATMENT BENEFIT) REGULATIONS 2009
(This note is not part of the Instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation.)
These regulations amend the definitions of dental benefit and treatment benefit in the light of a reduction in the range of treatments covered under the Treatment Benefit Scheme announced in the budget statement of 9 December 2009. These changes will apply in the case of all new claims made after 1 January 2010.
Claimants whose benefit or treatment has been approved on or before 31 December 2009 will continue to be entitled to receive treatment benefit under the previous arrangements.
