prescription charges you can get them free if you earn below a certain amount.
Hi everyone I have just read a blog written 5 days ago with regards to prescription charges and wanted to give some information on this. If you earn below a certain amount you can get free prescription and help with dentist and spectacle fees. You need to get a HC1 form which can be obtained from your gp's surgery, dentist, opticians and even the chemist may have them. You need to complete the HC1 form and send it off to the address on the form. If you qualify you will either receive a HC2 certificate which entitles you to complete help or a HC3 certificate which entitles you to partial help. You have to re-apply every year. I have a HC2 certificate and have not had to pay for my prescriptions for many years now. I hope this is helpful.
