Minister for Health (Deputy James Reilly): Information on James Reilly Zoom on James Reilly The Health Repayment Scheme Appeals Office is an independent office, established in December 2006 under the Health (Repayment Scheme) Act 2006, to provide a service to those who wish to appeal a decision of the Scheme Administrator.

The most recent report issued by the Appeals Office was for the year 2009. Activity levels were low throughout 2011 and remaining work on the Scheme is now drawing to a close with very few appeals still to be determined. I understand that the Office intends to report shortly on the period from January 2010 to the end of 2011.
