Irish Language Scheme 2020-2023: Request for Submissions

Why we are launching a consultation

The Health Insurance Authority is preparing an Irish language Scheme in accordance with Section 11 of the Official Languages Act 2003.  It is proposed that this Scheme will run for three years until 2023.

The primary objective of the Official Languages Act is to ensure better availability and a higher standard of public services through Irish. It is anticipated that the new Scheme will build on the progress made by the HIA from the first language scheme delivering services through Irish.

How to get involved

The HIA now wishes to invite representations in relation to the preparation of the new Scheme from all interested parties. Written submissions, preferably in electronic format, should be sent by Tuesday, 18 August 2020 to:
