Good evening to you all
Did you know that there are 2 levels of ESA?
To cut a long story short, today I received a £100 fine for not paying my dental fees.
In Nov 15, I arrived for my appointment and was asked if I paid for treatment, I said that I didn’t know because I was in receipt of ESA. The receptionist read my letter from the DWP and said
no thats fine, no charge`. That was a pleasant surprise!
Today (8/1/16), I receive a letter stating that due to non payment of my dental treatment I was being fined £100 + the £51. 30 dental fees
After today, I am concerned that I am going t be fined for non payment for my MS prescription, which is Baclofen. As before the pharmacy that I use, read my letter from the DWP and said the same as my dentist receptionist
thats fine, no charge.
I have never claimed benefits until now,( I had to retire from my job after 18 yrs service in the public sector) and I feel that people think that Im a scrounger!
I am happy to pay my way, I don’t want to be accused of committing FRAUD. Which I feel is happening now.
MS has made my simple, happy life so complicated which is hard enough. I just wish that essential services understood the impact that certain conditions/diseases have on people.
I now feel that the society does`nt care!!!
Sorry to ramble on, but i`m having a S**t day
