Document Does my HC2 cover my prescription if it started within three months after collecting it?

No, although your HC2 certificate may entitle you to claim a refund if you obtained an FP57 when you collected your prescription, it does not cover unpaid prescriptions collected prior to the certificate start date.

If you were not exempt at the time and you did not pay for your prescription, you will be liable for all charges if you are issued with a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).
