Document Can I send a HC1 application form if my current exemption hasn't expired yet?

No, your application form would be rejected if you're still entitled to help with your health costs, unless your current exemption is an HC2 or HC3. If you hold a valid HC2 / HC3 certificate, you can submit a new HC1 to renew at any time.

If you're currently exempt via a qualifying benefit
 or an NHS Tax Credit Exemption certificate, and know your exemption is due to expire, you mustn't complete an HC1 application until at least the day after it runs out, this is because an HC1 assessment is based on your circumstances at the time.
