Methadone Fees Calculator
Our colleagues at East Riding and Hull LPC have developed a useful Methadone fee checker which allow contractors to see how the new payment structure as a result of the drug tariff simplification rules that will come into force in July will affect them.
The table will calculate the current and future fees for liquid methadone based on the number of clients you currently have for each type of prescription. Please ensure that you read the description of each form type carefully before you choose it.
Where the table refers to single dose containers, the price is based on the prescription being correctly written to include the wording required to be paid for dispensing in daily dose containers.
Please see the psnc guide to ensure that existing prescriptions are eligible for this payment method.
The table lists some of the common types of FP10MDA prescribing patterns and should only be used as a guide. It should be noted that the example 14 day (12 collects) prescription and the 7 day (6 collects) prescription are based on these being supervised, thus generating 14 and 7 sets of fees respectively (if correctly endorsed). All figures in first table are in pence. Current / July fee relates fee per form. Current / July totals refer to averaged monthly income based on the number of clients entered on each line.
