A bit of a running battle with these jokers, May they said I wasn't entitled to free scripts following one of their 'checks'.

 

It seems that as I was on contribution based ESA as opposed to ''INCOME'' based, this negated 'free' scripts.

 

Even the pharmacist informed me I was entitled to free scripts, however my disability advisor has confirmed that I am not.

 

I called the NHSBSA weeks ago to inform them it was a genuine mistake, and I would gladly pay the cost of the script, obviously they said otherwise, and that I had to pay the penalty charge.

 

I went online and paid the script fee of £8.60, received their threat letter yesterday and was a bit taken aback by their claim that they would treat treat my non payment as a ''deliberate decision to avoid paying charges I owe to the NHS, and they may start debt recovery proceedings through the county court. This means that my name will be recorded in the registry of county court judgements....blah blah blah.''

 

I've not called them yet, to inform them of the dates I will be available to attend court, and to laugh at their bully boy threat letter.

 

For the avoidance of doubt, I will not be paying their penalty charge, and yes, I will go to court if needed.

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

In order to keep this thread updated, I called the NHSBSA regarding this "penalty charge" and informed them I wouldn't be paying it, I would however gladly pay for the script they said I wasn't entitled to gratis.

 

 

 

The chap was clueless bless him simply regurgitating the script that I have to pay the penalty fee too.

 

 

Went onto their website entered the ref number and paid for the script minus their profit pocket penalty fees.

 

 

Heard nothing since, less for a letter claiming the penalty fee had increased blah blah blah.....

I've had loads from these clowns and have never paid a penny... I was one of the people who were placed in the wrong ESA group for over 4yrs... I had them send me something like 3 or 4 of these last year, each one for a different script and each one for 2 or 3 items and each one with a separate penalty charge, they were informed that the DWP were looking into the incorrect claim and I wouldn't be responding to anything until that had been resolved... they were asking for something like £300 in total.

 

Like you I offered to pay for 2 items on a scripts just to get them to shut the hell up. So it was resolved on Dec 21st last year and they were informed of this and that it had been backdated 3yrs, but the claim was valid from a further 15 months. They ignored it, they ignored further letters and proof of my claim... and continued to send threats and claim charges were being added on top.

 

In the end the community law service who helped with my claims had to write to them and tell them to stop harassing me and to sort their crap out. I'd also written to them asking them to repay the money they had received under duress and harassment from me. They eventually wrote back telling me I was right and I didn't owe anything... But they still have never sent me my money back... perhaps I should start sending them threatening letters demanding it be paid and adding a penalty charge for non payment.
