Part 7S of the Scottish Drug Tariff was introduced in February 2013. It lists a number of Specials commonly prescribed in Scotland. Each product has a volume and a reimbursement price associated with it.
By default, Contractors are paid according to “the pack and a half rule” which simply means that payment is rounded to the nearest whole pack. So when dispensing 140ml of a product with a listed volume of 100ml, Contractors should endorse 140ml/200ml, 2 x 100ml, 2 O.P. etc. to make clear that they have had to use 2 packs to fulfil the prescription. At IPS Specials, we supply in multiples of the listed Drug Tariff pack size which makes it easier to endorse correctly.
