Document Am I automatically entitled to help with my health costs if I receive tax credits?

No, just being in receipt of tax credit payments doesn't automatically entitle you to help with your health costs, you must have a valid NHS Tax Credit Exemption certificate.

More information is available on our website, including a flowchart which can be used to check whether you're entitled to an NHS Tax Credit Exemption certificate. 

If you don't meet the criteria for an NHS Tax Credit Exemption certificate but you feel you're on a low income, you may want to complete a HC1 application form to see if you're entitled to any help with your health costs.
