NHS prescription and Universal Credit Posted on 27 Jan 2020

In advance of official communications from NHS, please see the workaround that has been notified to DWP.

 “At present, NHS prescriptions do not have a Tick Box option for someone claiming Universal Credit.

 There have been examples of claimants choosing the ESA option and as a result have received a £135 penalty notice. 

Until a new print is available claimants on UC should tick option K indicating JSA in payment.

This is the workaround which has been issued to Pharmacies.”
