Document Can my HC2 be backdated to cover an earlier NHS prescription I claimed for?

No, your HC2 automatically starts on the date your HC1 application was received by the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) 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.
