INFORMATION ABOUT CHECKS OF ENTITLEMENT

If you are claiming free treatment, or using an optical voucher, you should show proof of why you don't have to pay or why you can use a voucher, e.g. a benefit book or birth certificate. For more information about this read the tables here.

If you cannot show proof, you will get your NHS treatment free, or be able to use your optical voucher. However, your treatment form will be marked 'no evidence seen' and your entitlement may be checked later.

NHSScotland Counter Fraud Services will check claims for:

  • Full or partial help with NHS dental treatment.
  • Vouchers towards the cost of glasses or contact lenses.
