Document Can I claim a refund of my Prescription Prepayment Certificate (PPC) if I have an NHS Tax Credit Exemption certificate?

You may be entitled to a refund of your Prescription Prepayment Certificate (PPC) if you've got an NHS Tax Credit Exemption certificate. A PPC refund is based on the number of full unexpired months remaining and the date your NHS Tax Credit Exemption certificate is valid from.

3 Month PPC
You must become exempt in the 1st month of a 3 month PPC to qualify for a refund.
You wouldn't receive any refund if you become exempt in the 2nd or 3rd months.

12 Month PPC
For a 12 month PPC, you must become exempt within the 1st - 11th month.
You wouldn't receive a refund if you become exempt in the final month.

All refund claims must be received within 3 months of you becoming exempt. Any refunds received more than 3 months after the entitlement date, won't be processed under any circumstances.

If a person paying by Direct Debit (DD) is refused a refund because they applied outside the time limit, they're not liable to pay the remaining balance of the PPC as long as they return their PPC.
