NHS prescriptions for someone claiming Universal Credit

Please share this information from the Department for Work and Pensions to make people aware of this issue

"At present, NHS prescriptions do not have a Tick Box option for someone claiming Universal Credit.

There have been examples of claimants choosing the ESA option and as a result have received a £135 penalty notice.

Until a new print is available claimants on UC should tick option K indicating JSA in payment.

This is the workaround which has been issued to Pharmacies"
