Entitlement to partial remission and payment

6.—(1) Subject to paragraphs (2) to (4), a person is entitled to the payment in part of any HS travel expenses and remission in part of a HS charge provided that at the time the travel expenses are incurred or the charge is made –

(a)his capital resources do not exceed the capital limit; and

(b)either –

(i)his income resources exceed his requirements by less than a third of the charge or, as the case may be, by less than the travel expenses, or

(ii)he is a member of the family of a person described in sub-paragraph (b)(i),

but is required to make a claim for such remission or payment in accordance with regulation 7 (Claims to entitlement).

(2) In the case of a HS charge mentioned in regulation 4(1)(a), the entitlement under paragraph (1) to partial remission applies only to a charge for the supply of an appliance specified in Schedule 1 to the Charges Regulations (Charges for Fabric Supports and Wigs) and not to a charge for any other appliance or for drugs, medicines or pharmaceutical services.

(3) Subject to paragraph (4), the amount to which a person is entitled under paragraph (1) is –

(a)in the case of a HS charge, the difference between the charge and three times the amount by which his income resources exceed his requirements; and

(b)in the case of recoverable travel expenses, the difference between the amount of the expenses incurred and the amount by which his income resources exceed his requirements.

(4) In the case of a HS charge –

(a)for dental treatment or for the supply of a dental appliance provided as general dental services under Part VI of the Order, or

(b)for dental treatment provided as personal dental services under Part II of the Health Services (Primary Care) Order (Northern Ireland) 1997,

the charge which is partially remissible under this regulation and which must be used for the purposes of the calculation required under paragraph (3)(a) is the charge made for one course of treatment, including any charge made for a dental appliance supplied in that course of treatment.
