Don’t forget your travel expenses form

If you have a Personal Independence Payment (PIP) consultation at one of the Atos Healthcare PIP centres or one of our partners’ centres, remember to collect a form for your expenses while you are there. You should always be offered one with an envelope to return it in (you don’t need to pay the postage).

What you can claim expenses forAtos-Healthcare-travel-expenses

You can claim your travel expenses from your home to the
centre. This includes if you travelled by public transport (bus or train for example) or in a car driven by you or someone you know. We can sometimes pay for you to travel by taxi if you need to, but you need to speak to us as long before the appointment as possible to discuss it as to claim for a taxi it needs to be authorised by us in advance.

You need to make sure that you keep any tickets or receipts that you get for your travel so that you can send them with the form. This includes receipts for parking if you needed to pay for it. If you travelled by car (but not a taxi) you need to say on the form how many miles you travelled. The money you get back is then worked out from that number at 25p per mile.

You can find all of this information and more like it on the Atos Healthcare PIP website. We have explanations on there of all of the parts of the PIP assessment process as well as information about how to get in touch with us if you need to.

    Hello . In due course I will be required to attend an assessment . I had to cancel last time because I was informed this would take place in Edinburgh . Due to the condition of my back I do not travel at all well and certainly not that distance over and above the considerable stress this would cause me as I struggle dealing with situations out doors nowadays . I have been informed by my caseworker that you should { with a bit of persuasion} be able to offer me the assessment closer to my home in Leven Fife ? Can you please confirm this ? Regards .

      Hi Mr Morrison

      If we need to see you face to face as part of your PIP assessment and we ask you to visit one of our centres we will give you an appointment at a centre that is within 90 minutes by public transport of where you live. It might not be at the centre closest to where you live if there aren’t any appointments available there at the time.

      You are able to contact us to change your appointment once if you need to, including changing where it is. The contact details will be on the letter you get. You can see where we have centres in your area on this page of our website http://www.atoshealthcare.com/pip/consultation_locations/scotland
