Health care

You may have extra costs because of an illness or disability such as a special diet, extra clothing, bedding, special equipment or help in the home which you will need to include in your budget. If you live in England you may have to pay for prescriptions, dental treatment, eye tests and glasses. Some people may qualify for free prescriptions.
To find out if you are eligible or are able to reduce the costs by buying a Pre-payment Certificate, visit these NHS website pages.
