Updated process for submitting payment claims for the NUMSAS

Pharmacy contractors must ensure that claims for the NHS Urgent Medicines Supply Advanced Service (NUMSAS) are submitted correctly, following changes that were made in January 2018. In order to submit
a claim for payment, pharmacy contractors must complete the following steps at the end of each month:

  • Complete the NUMSAS claim form, which can be downloaded from the NHS Business Services Authority website
  • Place the completed claim form and FP10DT Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) dispensing tokens in an envelope
  • Send the envelope to NHSBSA with the pharmacy’s end of month bundle

Please note, the envelope must be clearly marked with “NUMSAS” and the pharmacy contractor’s F code and the FP10DT EPS dispensing tokens must be separated from other tokens, otherwise the pharmacy contractor may not be reimbursed correctly.

The NPA has produced a NUMSAS standard operating procedure (SOP), available on the NPA website, to support members providing the service.

For further information on this or any other query, please contact the NPA Pharmacy team on 01727 891 800 or email pharmacyservices@npa.co.uk.
