Background information

The resolution provides for the introduction of a limit in respect of the relievable amount of medical insurance premiums on which tax relief will be granted.

The provision is effective in respect of policies entered into, or renewed, on or after 16 October 2013. The resolution provides that a maximum relievable amount of €1,000 per adult and €500
for each child covered by the policy will apply.Where the premium for a particular beneficiary under the policy is less than the relevant limit, relief will be restricted to the actual premium paid.

A child for the purposes of this particular provision includes a student over 18 years and under 23 years who is in full-time education. These ceilings are being introduced as the cost of the tax relief has increased significantly in recent years, from €404 million in 2011 to €448 million in 2012 and €500 million in 2013 - Minister Pat Rabbitte
