Prescription Pre-payment

If you have been recently diagnosed with Birdshot you may not realise immediately that you should apply for a  pre-payment certificate for your prescriptions.  It will save you money in the long run.   The current cost is £104.00 for a 12-month PPC.  You don’t have to pay for it in one go,  I pay a monthly £8.70 for mine, by direct debit.

If prescription charges go up, you are covered for the rest of the year so you will not be affected immediately by price increases.

This link takes you to the NHS website to the page which has all the information about how to obtain the card.


One thought on “Prescription Pre-payment

  1. I found it worthwhile getting mine. My first two prescriptions were about £32.00 each (a month apart). I was offered a card straight away but I didn’t apply for one as I was a bit dazed and confused. By my third trip to Moorfields I had got my act together and arrived with it. The pharmacy were very honest with me the first time round and said I was going to be on the medication for a LONG time. I don’t think I believed them when they said it. It was only when I started doing research into Birdshot that I realised they were trying to do their best by me! The card is saving me a small fortune and has proved a good investment.
