How can you save money on your Hormone Replacement Therapy

Help with NHS Prescription Costs – Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

If you pay for NHS prescribed Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) medicine 3 or more times in 12 months, an NHS Hormone Replacement Therapy Prescription Prepayment Certificate (HRT PPC) could save you money.

Each item on an NHS prescription usually costs £9.65. You can buy an HRT PPC for a one-off payment of £19.30 (the cost of two single items).

The HRT PPC covers an unlimited number of certain HRT medicines for 12 months, regardless of why they are prescribed.

The HRT PPC does not cover all HRT medicines. 

If your HRT medicine is not covered, or you also get prescriptions for items other than HRT medicine, you may save more with a 3 or 12 month PPC that covers all NHS prescriptions.

Before buying an HRT PPC, check if you’re entitled to free NHS prescriptions and other help with health costs using the eligibility checker.
