If your HC2 or HC3 certificate has expired, you need to complete a new HC1 application form and apply again. We cannot accept photocopies of a previous HC1, even if your circumstances have not changed since your last application.

Check what help you could get to pay for NHS costs and apply online.

If you are unable to apply online, you can download and print an HC1 form (PDF: 452KB) or order an HC1 form online

It can take up to 18 working days to process an application from the date we receive it.

We will send you an outcome letter within 10 days of the processing your application.
