Zomorph 30mg modified-release capsules
Q: I have received a prescription for 28 capsules of Zomorph 30mg Modified-Release capsules (Kyowa Kirin Ltd). Will I be reimbursed for supplying the brand specified?
A: The pricing authorities only hold one price and manufacturer for Zomorph 30mg modified-release capsules which is Ethypharm UK Ltd.
If the prescriber has specified a different manufacturer it may be necessary to source the product direct from the manufacturer.
To ensure accurate remuneration for the prescription you should endorse the prescription with the manufacturer, quantity supplied, price and pack size otherwise payment will be based on the Ethypharm UK Ltd tariff price.
If the prescriber continues to prescribe the Kyowa Kirin Ltd product they may be investigated by the local Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and asked to justify their reason.
