Cheaper Prescriptions and Medications
Well probably all of us here need medications at some time.The cost of a prescription item is £7.10. This can soon add up but there are ways of reducing the cost.
Firstly, check to see if you have to pay. Children, pregnant women, 60+ years old and people on some tax credits and benefits. Wales and Scotland may have different rules and chartges, also. If in doubt ask.
In previous years I had problems with hay fever and the cost soon adds up with nasal sprays and anti-histamine tablets. So I used the Prescription Prepayment Certificate. For 3 months you pay £27.85 and all prescriptions in that month are free. Time it right and get the last one in just before it expires and you get 4 months of medicines for the same amount.
If you are on long term medication then look at the year long season ticket at £102.50. On two medications a month this will save amost £70. On three prescriptions a month the saving is almost £155! Very kindly they will even offer you the ability to pay over 10 monthly instalments by Direct Debit.
I hope that you find this tip useful.
