Universal Credit – check to see if you’re entitled to free NHS healthcare

The NHS Business Services Authority is helping patients understand their eligibility for free NHS prescriptions and NHS dental treatment by encouraging them to use our free online eligibility checker.

Following the recent rise in the number of people claiming Universal Credit (UC), we’re committed to making people who are new to UC aware that they could be entitled to help with their NHS health costs.

Help us spread the message within your networks and with your clients and customers. The materials and resources available here will help people understand the rules around eligibility and support them to claim free treatment correctly.
