I'm on income-based JSA in Wales, and here [see page 1 of linked document] (http://www.healthcosts.wales.nhs.uk/sit ... %20WEB.pdf) it says that someone on income-based JSA & their partner are entitled to full help with health costs.

Is my wife (on a spouse visa) entitled? She paid her IHS surcharge, but she is also not entitled to any benefits, so I'm confused.

Thanks.

The IHS covers your wife for NHS treatment. What 'health costs' are you referring to. :?:

Please don't send me PMs asking for immigration advice on posts that are on the open forum. If I haven't responded there, it's because I don't have the answer. I'm a moderator, not a legal professional.

She will need to pay for the fee charging treatments, she is not exempt and is subject to no recourse to public funds as far as I understand.

The use of 'partner' in the link you have provided is a generic one.

Please DO NOT send me a PM for immigration advice. I reserve the right to ignore the PM and not respond.
