Any one else on universal credit? I'm really unsure how it works and I'm so stressed over it.When going to the dentist do I pay the NHS rate that it says on the website on the same day or does it come off uc each time I'm not sure on how it all works can someone give me any advice please. Thanks
Hi there’s a tool here which allows you to check whether you’re exempt from NHS charges:

There’s also some info here about universal credit and health costs:

On UC your income should always be low enough to be exempt from NHS charges. You'll need to fill out send a form in the post to claim the exemption though. If you've paid for treatment you can claim a refund using the same form as long as you've kept your receipts.
