NEW Generics Which May Be Above Drug Tariff Sept 2019

BY GREG BULL  |  POSTED IN GENERAL NEWS

Every month we compare the Drug Tariff price against a marlet price for most generics available to purchase. We do this so you can have a starting point for those items which may be in short supply and you may need to write the prescription and add in the brand, manufacturer or wholesaler line you dispense in order to reduce losses in the dispensary.

The list below gives a sample of those items where, after clawback but before dispensing fee, you may be losing out on for September 2019. Please note this list below is not exhaustive:
