    ESA and Dental Care!

    ESA and Dental Care! 13th May 11 at 11:52 AM

    I am in need of some help and advice, hoping that you might be able to clear up a worry I have. I currently receive Employment and Support Allowance and have a dental appointment next week. I've tried to contact a benefits shop for the past two days without any luck (always busy, due to having one phone) and I am unable to get down their without help from my family (I have rheumatoid arthritis and struggle to walk, that and my grandfather as recently had a stroke so the family have barely been available for understandable reasons). So this seemed the next best place for help.

    Next week I have a dental appointment and was recently told that it's possible to get dental check-ups free when your on employment and support allowance. Is this true? And if so what is required of me to confirm that I am receiving this benefit to the dental practice?

    One other small thing, my rheumatologist told me at my last appointment that I need to have eye tests again at an opticians. I'm guessing that these are not covered in anyway, but some clarification would be welcomed.

    Thank you, your help is much appreciated.
