I was just wondering if anyone had experienced the same as me? I had a letter this week with £125 fine! According to NHS prescriptions, I had claimed a free prescription back in December that I wasn’t entitled to! I was on Income Support and then got switched over to Universal Credits at the end Jan/ start Feb this year. I paid the money, but am def not happy about it!
Today I had to pick up my prescription and as there was no box to tick for Universal Credits and knowing my luck, I would be slapped with another £125 so I had to fork out £44, even though they said I ‘might’ be ok signing one of the other boxes.
I was just wondering if anyone else had had similar experiences as me? Also whether you managed to get any of the money back?
I got fined last week for one prescription which was just a hydrocortisone cream back in Jan 2018 and the total was £51. I found my medical exempt card and rang the number up on the letter and got the bill wiped off. I work part time and the plastic card with my membership gets sent annually.
