Document Am I entitled to an HC2 certificate for free NHS prescriptions?

We are unable to advise if you are entitled to an HC2 until you have made an application and your financial circumstances have been assessed.
The application process is open to anyone who does not already qualify for help with their health costs, unless you and your partner (if applicable) have combined capital of more than; 
  • £16,000 in savings, investment or property (not counting the place where you live), or;
  • £23,250 in savings, investments or property if you live permanently in a care home (£24,000 if resident in Wales)
