Drug Tariff Review

Friday 11th August 2017

Drug Tariff Review

We have recently added a new function to the PharmAssist Customer Portal. We are now able to advise you of any generic products that are above the current Drug Tariff price before you place your order.

You will have two options:

  • Warn: this will display a warning showing that this product is above the current Drug Tariff price. You can then decide whether or not to order this product.
  • Block: this will remove the product from your cascade so you won't be able to order it through PharmAssist.

You can set all above-tariff priced items to either Warn or Block and you can manually override any action on a per product basis and switch between Block or Warn should you wish to take a different action on a certain product. You will find more details in the ‘Help’ section of the Drug Tariff Review.

The warnings will use the following colour coding scheme:

  • Purple = over 150% or 2.5x the current Drug Tariff price
  • Red = 20% over the current Drug Tariff price
  • Orange = 10% over the current Drug Tarff price
  • Blue = 10% under the current Drug Tariff price 

The PSNC Concession pricing sent on the 10th August will be active from tomorrow and therefore isn’t reflected in today's review listings.

Please be aware that any changes you make via the Drug Tariff Review will be updated overnight and therefore active from the next day.

This will only be available on the PharmAssist website so you will need to periodically check the items listed in the Drug Tariff Review menu.

In the following release of this service you will be able to opt for an automated email for any products ordered that you have selected as "Warn".

If you have any questions about this please feel free to email us at query@pharmassistsolutions.co.uk
