The NHS Business Services Authority offers help to some people with their health costs through The Low Income Scheme, Pre-Payment Certificates and the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).
You can check your eligibility for all these schemes by using the NHS eligibility checker. This will advise you if you are automatically exempt or what you need to do to apply for help.
You might be able to get help to pay these NHS charges:
- NHS prescriptions
- NHS dental treatment
- sight tests, glasses and contact lenses
- travel to receive NHS treatment
- NHS wigs and fabric supports
You can check what help you could get and what to do next.
It usually takes 3 minutes to check.
To do this, visit the NHS Business Services Authority website.
