Drug Tariff Price Changes Feb 2020

BY GREG BULL  |  POSTED IN GENERAL NEWS

The table below shows a sample of data available free inside the Dispex Members' only area of this website.

Interesting to note the price rise of Diclofenac sodium 75mg modified-release tablets as the reimbursement price is being changed from the brand Fenactol SR to Dicloflex. You should double check how prescriptions are being written for this item. Presumably you will be prescribing generically, and if so your reimbursement from February 1st will be at the new, higher price. Check that what you are dispensing is being purchased for LESS THAN the new Drug Tariff price of £17.56

Likewise with the price falling of Aripiprazole 10mg and 15mg orodispersible tablets sugar free you need to check your purchase price of these to ensure you aren't dispensing at a loss.
