    Hi all, i recently had to shell out a ridiculous amount of money for the dentist, and will have to pay out more in a couple of weeks time. obviously being a student this is gonna be a bit of a problem, so i was wondering if anybody knew the criteria for receiving a HC2 certtificate?

    It's just based on your income, they can give you a 6 month one if your income's borderline or a 12 month one if its low. I was on a £3300 loan + £200 a month from my parents and got a 12 month form with no bother at all. You just have to send them your student loan certificate (it says in the HC1 which bit of paper) and the HC1 and they'll post the certificate and the HC2 out within about 2-3 weeks. It only covers certain dental treatments and you usually have to pay the first £15 for a check up, then £30, £50 or £100 depending on what else you have done.

    Hope that helps.

    If you get FULL support - you don't have to pay for any NHS treatment - including dental checkups...

    :confused: The earning limit (after rent) is £50.95 (under 25) and £64.30 per week (over 25). (more if you're disabled)

    would a HC2 certificate give me free prescriptions?
    Yes it does. HC2 gives full help and HC3 gives partial help.

    If you get the full support- it depends what your financial situation is. When I was in receipt of student loans and parental support as an undergraduate, I qualified for help with the cost of wigs and prosthetics and that was all. Now I'm covered for free everything.

    I wasn't stating how much you had to earn, merely saying that if you received full help it does include dentist.
