The Government has announced it wants to save €113m through the medical card probity scheme - but has declined to say how many medical cards will be lost as a result.
The Health Minister's confirmed a communications campaign will be launched to explain the review.
Enda Kenny told reporters in Limerick today that it is wrong to suggest lots of people will lose their medical cards.
"The assessment process is the same for everybody so those people who are clearly under the income guidelines for medical cards need have no worries," he said.
"Their cards will continue."
