We’re Luddites at heart — 4 Comments

  1. As I understand the number is either your PPS number or that of your spouse – so I caution publishing on the www. Identity theft and all of that……….

  2. After medical issue in April 2005, I got my drug payment scheme card. The maximum monthly payment then was €80 – so 80% inflation in 8/9 years and likely to rise further.

    The Drug Payment computer system does not even allow pharmacies to talk to each other. The €144 per month is (or was at least) based upon ‘in any one pharmacy’. Go to a second pharmacy and you will have to submit a paper form to claim refund. The second pharmacy can’t even see your prescription.

    I am reminded of school and writing basic computer programmes – garbage In, garbage Out….

  3. I remember the enthusiasm in our local pharmacy when they talked about how much easier and more efficient things would become.
