The NHSBSA have issued an update regarding a price correction for ‘Macrogol 3350 oral powder 8.5g sachets sugar free’ in the October 2020 Drug Tariff.

The Part VIIIA Basic Price published in the October 2020 Drug Tariff for 28 sachets of ‘Macrogol 3350 oral powder 8.5g sachets sugar free’ should read £39.85 instead of £49.85.

In the NHS dictionary of medicines and devices (dm+d), the list price of Macrogol 3350 oral powder 8.5g sachets sugar free (TransiSoft)® changed from £39.85 to £49.85 on 14 September.  Following the price change mechanism process for any proprietary preparations and Part VIIIA products where the price is based on a proprietary product (for example, most Category C products), a price change after the 8th of the month will be applied for reimbursement purposes to prescriptions dispensed the following month.

In the case of TransiSoft®, as the list price changed on the 14 September 2020, the new reimbursement price would apply to prescriptions (branded or generic) dispensed from November 2020 onwards. Any prescriptions dispensed and submitted for payment in September and October will be reimbursed at the old list price of £39.85.
