Document Am I entitled to receive help with NHS health costs if I'm 60 or over?

Yes, if you're aged 60 or over you're automatically entitled to some help towards your NHS costs. The help that you receive will differ depending on where you live.
  • England - free NHS prescriptions and sight tests
     
  • Scotland - free NHS prescriptions, dental examinations, wigs, fabric supports and sight tests
     
  • Wales - free NHS prescriptions, dental examinations, wigs, fabric supports and sight tests
You may also be able to receive other help with the health costs if you get, or are included in an award of someone getting, a qualifying benefit. If not, you may want to consider applying for help through the NHS Low Income Scheme by completing an HC1 application form.
