Hello everybody! I am just new in Ireland and I'm trying to figure out the payments done to the pharmacy in order to improve the claiming in my pharmacy.
My question is regarding the "extemporaneous fee". Acording to the last change I saw in the Irish Law (http://www.irishstatutebook.ie/eli/2013/si/279/made/en/pdf) there is a "Fee per drug item for extemporaneous preparation of oral medication" of 6.53€, with GMS code 99159. Is this fee claimable INSTEAD of the regular "fee-per-item" of 5€/4.5€/3.5€ or I should claim the fee with the regular one?
And another question: for example, if a prescription comes with Augmentin Duo suspension, it is accountable as "extemporaneous preparation of oral medication"?
Any help would be appreciated.
