Stage 2 includes changes to the reimbursement rules for methadone prescribed on FP10MDA & FP10 prescriptions.
The new arrangements come into effect from the 1st July and the LPC has some serious concerns about some of these changes and how they may affect contractors. We would urge contractors to ensure they understand the changes and how it will affect them. We published a PSNC fact sheet in our LPC NEWSLETTER.
We have also added a METHADONE FEE CALCULATOR to the our site to help you understand the impact on your business. We urge contractors to use the calculator and feedback to us any big swings in payments.
