Drug Tariff Watch

Published on: 4th August 2021 | Updated on: 29th April 2024

Each month Community Pharmacy England’s Dispensing and Supply Team create a summary of the Drug Tariff changes. Community Pharmacy England’s Drug Tariff Watch includes details of additions, deletions and category and price changes.

It is important to monitor the monthly changes to Part VIII and Part IX of the Drug Tariff as these can impact on reimbursement. For example, if a drug moves from Category C to Category A, certain claims such as Broken Bulk or out of pocket expenses may no longer be permitted, and any wrong or missing endorsements can lead to incorrect or delayed payments. The notice of deletion of appliances from Part IX is also very important to note as prescriptions for any devices no longer listed in the Drug Tariff will be disallowed by the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA).
