Document Can my Tax Credit Exemption be backdated to cover an earlier NHS prescription I claimed for?

No, your Tax Credit Exemption start date is determined by the date HMRC deemed you eligible and cannot be backdated under any circumstances.
If you have been sent a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) relating to a prior NHS prescription, you will be liable for all charges unless you held any other valid exemption.
