Well perhaps they can recuperate the money from the Doctors and consultants who didn't fill out the appropriate forms in relation to the patients admittance.
I would guess the majority of these admittance are not urgent (urgent "casualty" cases been treated under PRSI payments) so are likely referrals etc.

Not sure why you would expect the insurance companies to pay without appropriate documentation.

I don't have the details - so the above is really conjecture (but that is what is rumoured).

The 100 casualty fee is easier to define - if you used the service and don't have a medical card, then you are liable for the fee. There is no ambiguity.

The final point, I think is the most serious part of your comment. It is an issue, and whatever about the 6m shortfall, which is a small portion of the overall budget of 2bn+, the issue is who is going to take responsibility for it. Someone, somewhere, did not fill out the forms correctly (or many people) and are they going to be held accountable for it
