The NHS and reimbursement

The NHS reimburse practices for the costs of sourcing and administering PA items. This means the NHS pays a PA allowance, plus a dispensing fee.  

PA allowance + dispensing fee

The PA allowance is made to cover any VAT that has been paid on the purchase of PA items. Prostap DCS requires reconstitution immediately prior to administration, and so attracts TWO dispensing fees.

PA allowance is:

(NHS list price-clawback) +VAT allowance + dispensing fee A couple of things to remember:

  • The dispensing fee will vary according to the number of items submitted for reimbursement per individual doctor per month
  • Clawback is your practice discount abatement rate, which varies according to the number of items submitted for reimbursement by the practice per month

Wholesaler discounts

Many wholesalers provide discounts when purchasing items through them. Some wholesalers, like CLARITYpharma, even provide these discounts immediately at the point of purchase. Taking advantage of these discounts can help improve practice income. reimbursement-figure1 CLARITYpharma is the preferred direct dispensing partner of Takeda UK Ltd, and you can find out more about them here reimbursement-button1

Getting paid is easy

Every month the appropriate NHS payment services division will send you the correct submission document in advance for you to make your monthly claim. reimbursement-figure3 Each NHS region has its own submission forms, which are personalised to each practice claiming payment for administration/dispensing.  

  • England – use claim form FP34PD

For submissions in England, submission instructions are here reimbursement-button2

  • Wales – Use claim form WP34P

For submissions in Wales, submission instructions are here

Hassle-free claiming

Prescription forms for PA items (excluding high volume PA items) should also be included with the submission document, and sorted alphabetically by prescriber name. Payment claims should be made no later than the fifth day of the month following that in which the medicine was dispensed. Payment will be received at the end of the month following the month in which the payment claim was received. For example August claims received by NHS Prescription Services by September 4 will be paid at the end of October.
