Document What is the prescription charge in Jersey?

If you have not been in Jersey long enough to have a health card (six months) then you will have to pay the full cost of any prescriptions from your GP. 

If you have a Social Security health card, prescriptions are free. All you need to do is show your health card at any community pharmacy.  Different rules apply to prescriptions from a hospital doctor, which must be collected from the hospital pharmacy and may involve a charge.

Please note: Whilst the majority of GP prescription items are free, there are some exceptions. A list of items that are free on prescription can be obtained from the Social Security Department.
