UK Health Care Surcharge.

Looks like this is going though too, can't say I disagree with it....

Basically as of 6th April 2015 anyone on long term time limited visa (with some exceptions) will have to pay a surcharge of £200 pa for access to NHS, I think that includes FLR (not ILR).

Sounds too cheap to me. But once implemented they will slowly crank it up like anything.
