HCS 1: Are you entitled to help with health costs?

CLAIMING HELP WITH TRAVEL COSTS TO AND FROM HOSPITAL

When you go for treatment, tell the hospital that you want to claim back the cost of your journey and show proof of your entitlement such as your Pension Credit entitlement notice, your NHS tax credit exemption certificate or your LISHC2 certificate. Also, keep any tickets or receipts you have as proof of the cost.

If you have a valid HC3 certificate and your journeys cost more in total in any one week than your certificate says you have to pay, show the HC3 certificate at the hospital and ask if you are entitled to any money back.
