Who can challenge?

You can only make a challenge if:

  • you were entitled to claim free NHS prescriptions or free or reduced cost NHS dental treatment, or you had a valid prescription prepayment certificate at the time
  • you think you have an exceptional reason not to pay, and can show that you did not act wrongfully or with any lack of care
