Prescription Charges

You will need a Prescription Charge Exemption Certificate (FP92) which you can get from your Health Authority. To obtain the certificate you must complete form FP92A (EC92A in Scotland) which is available from your doctor, hospital or pharmacist. The form (which will need to be signed by your doctor) tells you what to do. These certificates only last for a finite period after which they must be renewed. Your health authority may automatically send out an application for renewal. Unfortunately, bromocriptine, cabergoline and quinagolide are not exempt and you will have to pay for these unless you qualify for free prescriptions. Also, testosterone replacement therapy is not exempt if you do not suffer from hypopituitarism. Information about free prescriptions and the full list of medical conditions which qualify for exemption from prescription charges can be found in leaflet HC11 , available from pharmacies, some doctors' surgeries and main Post Offices. Information can also be found online here If you are not sure whether you are entitled to free prescriptions, you must pay for your prescription and ask for a NHS receipt (form FP57 in England, EC57 in Scotland) when you pay; you can't get one at a later date. This form tells you how to get your money back. If you are not entitled to free prescriptions and you think you will have to pay for more than 5 items in 4 months or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a pre-payment certificate.

Where Can I Get The Correct Form For Free Prescriptions

Where can I get the correct form for free prescriptions My exemption card has expired (I half expected to get a letter from the NHS saying did I need to renew, but didn't....) I have trawled the net and I believe the correct form is FP92A, however no where on the form does it mention Cancer in the "about your medical condition" Rob - currently on an enforced Dasatanib holiday I just went to my GP reception and filled out a form they gave me, and that was the end of my involvement. That was then passed to the GP who signed it off, and hay presto, about 2 weeks later the new card arrived. Once you've completed it then your Doctor (either GP or hospital doctor) is to sign to validate the information you provide. thanks all - I have found this on the net but what did you fill in on that form as it mentions conditions such as , epilepsy, diabetes, etc etc but not cancer /leukaemia I have just renewed mine.

Ensure Your Patients Have A Medical Exemption Certificate

Ensure Your Patients Have A Medical Exemption Certificate

Ensure your patients have a medical exemption certificate Ensure your patients have a medical exemption certificate Growing numbers of people with diabetes are being fined up to 100 for claiming free prescriptions, despite using insulin or medicine to manage their diabetes. This is because they do not have a medical exemption certificate. Following our campaign, the process has changed and if people are issued with a fine, they do now have the chance to apply for a certificate to prove their eligibility andhave the fine cancelled. However, if people claim a free prescription without a medical exemption certificate they will have to pay for that prescription. The prescription exemption checking service was centralised in 2014, following years of administration at a local level. This led to the large number of people with diabetes being fined. It also revealed a widespread lack of awareness amongst people with diabetes and healthcare professionals about the need for medical exemption certificates. The long-term lack of enforcement had led to a common, and understandable misconception, that having diabetes treated by medication or insulin alone was the criteria for claiming free prescriptions. If you are a GP, you have responsibility for signing and submitting the application forms for the medical exemption certificate. So, please make sure all your patients have completed this. You have a crucial role for checking that people do have a certificate when they collect their prescription. If people do not have a certificate pharmacists should advise people to pay for their prescription and to take and.

Whilst the NHS is in such a dire financial situation, which is consequently reducing the standard of patient care, people with type 2 diabetes continue to get free prescriptions. Type 2 diabetes is caused by life-style factor, therefore some people class it as self-inflicted. The cost to the nhs of the medicines used to treat type 2 diabetes is astronomical, 36 for one months supply of dapaglioflozin, 70 for a months supple of lixisenatide etc etc. Type 2 diabetics get medical exemption, which means that they pay nothing for their prescriptions, as a 'self-inflicted' disease, do you think they are entitled to the medical exemption? There's a prescription pre-payment certificate that costs less than 10 a month and covers any prescription the patient may be given. You say they need the medication, yes, they do, however, people with asthma, COPD, emphysema etc also need their medicines, however they do not get a medical exemption, they have to pay for their medicine. Similarly, the use of statins to prevent heart attack and other forms of CVD has reached out to millions of patients, again, they have to pay, why is it not free for these people, yet it is free for type 2 diabetics? How do they decide what disease are worthy of medical exemption and which ones aren't? What percentage of type II diabetics use drugs like dapagliflozin and lixisenatide? Is this a significant proportion compared to those simply on metformin (1.30/month) +/- gliclazide (3.30/month)? Also, what would be the subsequent cost of treating the inevitable increase in heart attacks, strokes, CKD and peripheral vascular disease when a subgroup of DMT2 patients stop taking their now non-funded medications?
