How to submit your claim
Dispensing contractors must complete a declaration form, called a 'submission document', when they are making their monthly claims for reimbursement and remuneration. There are different forms to use depending on what you are making a claim for, and whether you are a pharmacist, GP or dispensing appliance contractor. Below is a table so you can check which form you should use.
Pharmacies should fill in the digital FP34C on the Manage Your Service portal and will also receive an Account Identifier Document to send in with their paper prescriptions. All other contractors will be sent the submission document in advance to make the monthly claim. Each FP34A, C, D and PD Submission document is personalised and has a barcode on it specific to each contractor. The submission document for pharmacists, dispensing doctors and appliance contractors are also specific to each dispensing month.
Please make sure you fill in all the relevant areas on the form.
