Changes to the monthly NUMSAS claims process

Changes to the monthly NUMSAS claims process

January 11, 2018

As part of the preparations to extend the NHS Urgent Medicines Supply Advanced Service (NUMSAS) pilot to the end of September 2018, NHS England has worked with the NHS Business Services Authority (NHS BSA) to review how NUMSAS claims are submitted at the end of each month.

Community pharmacy contractors can now send completed NUMSAS claims using the following process which can begin immediately:

  • complete the existing  NHS Urgent Medicines Supply Advanced Service Pilot claim form;
  • place the completed NUMSAS claim form along with the completed FP10DT EPS dispensing tokens (completed as part of the NUMSAS) in an envelope clearly marked ‘NUMSAS’; and
  • send the NUMSAS envelope to the NHS BSA with the normal monthly submission bundle.

Please ensure that FP10DT EPS tokens (completed as part of NUMSAS) are separated from other tokens, or there is a risk that claims will not be reimbursed if the NUMSAS tokens are scanned and stored with the other tokens.

For more information about NUMSAS, please visit psnc.org.uk/numsas
