Cross-Border Directive patients waiting up to 13 weeks for reimbursements

first_imgA call has been made for immediate funding to address a backlog in applications for the Cross-Border Directive.Fianna Fáil TD for Donegal, Charlie McConalogue, has said that the request for additional resources by the Cross-Border Directive team must be approved immediately by the Minister for Health and the HSE.The HSE revealed that there are currently 3,500 applications for reimbursement and prior authorisation waiting to be processed. It is taking approximately 13 weeks to process applications. Deputy McConalogue said that Cross-Border team have been proactive in their approach to seeking additional staff and resources due to a rapidly increasing demand on the service.“The cross-border directive provides people who are languishing on waiting lists with an alternative option by giving them the opportunity to avail of health services in another European country. They can then recoup costs from the HSE for the amount of that treatment in Ireland, or the cost of the treatment abroad, if that is less,” Mr McConalogue said.“However, their requests have been met by radio silence from the HSE and the Minister while patients are left waiting on reimbursements which in many cases can be thousands of euros.”McConalogue said the delays are “unacceptable” and “indicative of how the health system is run under our Government in that a scheme that aims to relieve the pressure on the public waiting list is also under resourced.” He called on the Minister and HSE to come together to approve this funding request.Cross-Border Directive patients waiting up to 13 weeks for reimbursements was last modified: June 18th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Cross-Border Directivelast_img read more

A More Delicious Google Search, Now With Recipe View & Filters for Ingredients

first_imgDespite the abundance of cooking websites, finding a good recipe can be quite challenging. It isn’t simply a matter of finding highly-rated recipes or recipes with pictures. How do you wade through all the available recipes and find the one that matches dish you want to make, the cooking and prep time you have available, and the ingredients you have in stock?To assist with that, Google has added a new feature to its search engine: Recipe View.The new view lets you narrow your search results to display only recipes. You can click on Recipes in the sidebar to view just recipe results. The new view also gives you a number of filters to help find the right recipe. You can clearly see the ratings, the pictures, and the ingredients. The latter is great as it lets you filter your recipe search so that, for example, you only pull up shepherd’s pie recipes that contain lamb (not beef, folks. Please, not beef). The Recipe View also lets you try more open-ended searches, so you can pull up recipes based on a specific ingredient. Google says the new Recipe View is based on data from rich snippets markup. If you’re a recipe publisher, you can add the markup to your Web pages so that your content can appear with this improved presentation. Google didn’t indicate if it has plans to expand this sort of markup into other search efforts, but it’s a good reason – at the very least for recipe publishers – to mark up your websites.
