Once the CET claim has been processed an email will be sent to the address given on the online submission form. It will confirm the CET grant will be paid in the next GOS payment run and the case has been closed.
Due to restrictions on the existing Ophthalmic Payments System the CET payment will appear on the contractor’s GOS statements as Enhanced Service Value. Details of the name of the performer that the CET grant is for will be included.
Please only use the CET Claim option on the online form to submit claims for 2018.
Any queries about previous CET claims from past years should be submitted using the Ophthalmic Payments option on the online enquiry form.
Please follow these steps:
Legal Directions put in place by the Department of Health and Social Care set the timescales for when CET grants can be claimed. PCSE will not be able to process claims received after the deadline.
Claims submitted within the timescales will be processed for payment. Once a claim has been processed an email will be sent to the address provided on the online submission form. It will confirm the CET grant will be paid in the next available GOS payment run and the case has been closed.
If you have a query about a CET claim you can contact us via the online enquiry form on the PCSE website. Select the Ophthalmic Payments option and then choose the CET Grant Claims query type. Please complete the mandatory details including your case reference number and the date of when your claim was submitted.
All CET claims that were received by PCSE before midnight on 1 November 2018 have now been processed and paid.
CET claims can only be submitted by and paid to a contractor. Locum optometrists who have not yet received payment should first check with the contractor who submitted the claim on their behalf to see if a payment has been made.
Any further queries can be submitted to PCSE using the Ophthalmic Payment online enquiry form on the Contact Us page. Once on the form, please select 'CET Grant Claims' from the drop down menu under 'Type of Query.'
