FP10 Prescription Forms are Changing
Posted on 28 Jan 2020
New prescription forms have been introduced to help eligible patients correctly claim free NHS prescriptions and avoid penalty charges.
The suite of FP10 prescription forms have been changed by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA). The exemption boxes on the back of the prescription form(s) have been updated which will make it easier for patients to claim the exemptions to which they are entitled.
The updated FP10 forms include a new exemption box U for patients who are in receipt of Universal Credit and meet the criteria for free NHS prescriptions. Not all benefits entitle people to free prescriptions. Patients can find out if they’re entitled to free NHS prescriptions, NHS dental treatment and help with other NHS costs using the online eligibility checker.
The changes will reduce confusion for patients.
