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.
