Hospital allowances scheme

The NHS Hospital Travel Cost Scheme (HTCS)

If you are claiming certain benefits you may be entitled to claim reimbursement of travel costs to and from hospital as part of a Department of Health scheme.

To be eligible for help with travel costs under HTCS, patients must be in receipt of one of the qualifying benefits or allowances such as Income Support or Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance, or meet the criteria of the NHS Low Income Scheme.

For more information about this scheme see the Department of Heath website.
