I feel bad for this, but the last month or so I've been saying I'm in education when I collect my prescription, even though I'm not. I'm autistic and have anxiety and have been worrying about being arrested for fraud etc. What should I do?

It's too late now. What are the punishments if they do find out?

It’s a penalty charge for falsifying an exemption

It's a £100 fine plus the charge of each prescription you falsely claimed.

The age is 19, when you have to start paying. 18 if you’re not in education.

Unlikely to be arrested but you might have to pay a penalty
Have a look at this link to see if you qualify for free prescriptions under the NHS low income scheme and you should be eligible to apply for a HC2 certificate then you show that when you go to get your prescription
