Unhappy NHS Tax Credit exemption card

Last year I received this card which was fantastic, as a household we had a low income however this year we are not eligible as I think we have gone over the threshold? does any one know what the threshold is and is it based on a joint income coming into the house or on an individual? as cost of living has gone up with morgages etc we as a household are hugely worse off and even more so now as we seem to have lost this as well?

Look here Click on the flow chart to see if you are entitled.
You can also claim free prescriptions and dental fees with a HC1 form look here

How to claim

You'll need to complete form HC1 from a Jobcentre Plus office or NHS hospital. You may also be able to get an HC1 from your doctor, dentist or optician.
You can also get an HC1 by contacting the NHS Forms order line on 0845 610 1112 or by email at the following address:
For more information about how to claim, please contact the Health Cost advice line on 0845 850 1166.

Worth filling in as they go off what your out goings are as well as your income.

Good luck
