Drug Tariff Review

This feature has become an indispensable tool for many pharmacies due to its ability to put you in complete control of how you order above tariff lines.

The Drug Tariff Review advises you of any generic products that are above the current Drug Tariff price.

You can choose to:

‘Warn’ - will display a warning within PharmAssist.

‘Block’ - will remove the product from your cascade so you won’t be able to order it through PharmAssist.

Settings can be applied for the entire list or you can manually change the settings for individual products.

If email notifications are enabled, you will receive an email when:

  • a line is marked as ‘warn’ and the stock will be supplied from an over Drug Tariff supplier.
  • a line is marked as ‘block’ and stock wasn’t available from any supplier under Drug Tariff price.

Once authorised by you, we will also automate an email to the PSNC/CPS so that we can have maximum impact on concession pricing.

The Drug Tariff Review feature can be located on your Customer Portal. You will find more details in the ‘Help’ section of the Drug Tariff Review.

Setting your over tariff threshold

You can now let the system process over tariff lines based upon the % above tariff.

If you are comfortable to order lines that are up to 20% over tariff, simply set your threshold and the system will then automatically process these lines as warn only and block lines that are over 20%.

Should you still want to apply blocks or warnings on particular lines you can override the default instructions to ensure the system treats these lines exactly how you want it to.

Drug Tariff review will not only help help maintain continuity of supply by processing selected lines without disruption, but also add time back into your day as you aren’t required to make decisions on each and every over tariff line.
