the title is self explanatory. just curious because uni is expensive already
If you're 18 and in full time education, I believe it is free. But when you turn 19 then you have to pay, even if you're still in full-time education. I hope that's right, because that's what I've been doing. I know you have to pay for prescriptions and eye tests etc.
A HC2 certificate allows you to get full help with dental care (as long as it's not cosmetic) as well as prescriptions/eye tests/glasses etc. A HC3 certificate means you get partial help with dental care, so if your treatment costs £100 and your certificate says you need to pay for treatments up to £50, you would pay that £50 and the rest would be topped up for you.
