People normally qualify for benefit on this scheme through their PRSI payments. Only PRSI at classes A, E, H and P count. This will be depended upon how many contributions you have made and your age. You may also be entitled to Treatment Benefit under your spouse or partner’s PRSI payments.

Social Insurance contributions made in another country covered by EU regulations may qualify you for treatment in Ireland.
If you think you are qualified you will be required to sign a dental claim form to that effect, provide your PPS number and name of your employer.
