February Tariff Changes

Friday, February 2, 2018


With the publishing of the February Tariff yesterday we are aware of continuing reports on lines not available at tariff price and we encourage you to report such lines via the Shortage Reporter.  This allows us to monitor and report on these prices to support you and to ensure adjusted prices can be agreed where possible.

We want to highlight also the Pfizer patent for Lyrica and neuropathic pain expired in July 2017.  As a result of generic availability, the pregabalin price in the Scottish Drug tariff reduced from September 2017 and generic presentations can be used for this indication also.  We are aware that many of the products are now available with updated Patient Information Leaflets for all indications.
