Paying for your care and support

Which care services do you pay for?

Which care services do you pay for?

Most NHS care is free but many people have to pay for some things. All people registered with a Welsh GP, who get their prescriptions from a Welsh pharmacist, are entitled to free prescriptions.

You may be entitled to benefits like Attendance Allowance or Disability Living Allowance to help meet the cost of care at home (see Financial help and advice). 

In most circumstances people are expected to contribute towards the cost of their care. Free services include information, advice and assessments of what help people and their carers need.
