PRESCRIPTION EXEMPTIONS

Many of us assume that we are entitled to FREE prescriptions, but getting it wrong could cost you. A new campaign from NHS England and NHS Business Service Authority aims to help people understand if they are entitled to FREE prescriptions and how to claim correctly to avoid penalty charge notices of up to £100.

All you need to do is visit www.nhs.uk/checkbeforeyoutick to use the eligibility checker. Answering a few simple questions will help you understand if you can tick the box for a free prescription, and what you proof you need to show your pharmacists when you're collecting your prescription, or when it's being delivered to you.

If you are NOT entitled to FREE prescriptions, there's other financial help available such as the NHS Low Income Scheme and NHS Prepayment Certificates. To find out more, visit www.nhs.uk/healthcosts.
