NHS Low Income Scheme

The NHS Low Income Scheme can help if you have a low income but are not exempt from charges.

If you live in England, Scotland or Wales you may be eligible if you have savings and investments of less than £16,000. The limit is a little higher is you live in a care home.

The NHS Low Income Scheme may help with the full or partial costs of:

  • NHS prescriptions
  • NHS dental treatment
  • Sight tests, glasses and contact lenses
  • Travel to receive NHS treatment
  • NHS wigs and fabric supports

You can order the application form - HC1 - from the NHS Business Services Authority helpline 0845 603 1108 or by visiting the NHS Business Services Authority website.
