How to claim help with the costs of NHS dental treatment.

If you are eligible to receive help with health costs, you will need form HC1 to claim for full (HC2) or partial (HC3) help with NHS dental costs. These forms are available from your Jobcentre Plus office or by calling 0845 610 1112. For help in completing form HC1 or further advice call 0845 850 1166.

Form HC1 can also be requested from www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk (HC1 request). If you complete form HC1 after your treatment, you will have to pay and then claim a refund when you submit form HC1.

To find out more about free NHS dental treatment and how to get it, see Help with health costs (HC11), which is available from Jobcentre Plus offices and dental surgeries, or can be downloaded from www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk (HC11 form).
