In the current environment of drug shortages, contractors are making many more NCSO endorsements...It's so easy to miss off something; and if you do, the people pricing your prescriptions are not very forgiving. In fact they will ignore the NCSO endorsement and pay you the lower DT price!
Indeed a recent PSNC study makes shocking reading!
Only about 40% of contractors bothered to make a NCSO claim...losing lots of money.
Of those claims, only about 75% of the claims were successful...
Of the 25% of claims that were unsuccessful, about 70% were unsuccessful due to endorsing error (AND the remaining claims were not successful due to an error by the prescription pricing service!
So my message to contractors is:-
Make your NCSO claims, and please ensure when you do that you claim correctly!
