Hi Fiona,

You should remain exempt from the PCA until you are migrated from IB to ESA which the way things are going could be over a year, perhaps more.

There is more on IB exemptions in the Spotlight area of the forums HERE

I'm afraid your other post on the same topic has been deleted, since duplicate posting is not allowed.

However, yes ATOS doctors can do home visits if you're too ill to attend a Medical Examination Centre (MEC), but you need to provide evidence from your GP or other medical professional who may be treating you that you're unfit to attend a MEC.

Best wishes.

Jim
