The he alth ministry has published an ordinance specifying the method and procedure for issuing medical prescriptions. After the entry into force of the new Reimbursement Act, i.e. after January 1, 2012, new prescription formulas will apply in accordance with the ordinance.

New on the printprescriptionwill be information on the patient's payment fordrugs , which is to be placed on the right side of the print, in the form of an entry: 100%, 50% or 30 percent for payment.

For medicines dispensed free of charge, the designation "B" will be entered, for drugs dispensed for a lump sum - "R". The name of the drug is to be entered to the left of the prescription.

The regulation enters into force on January 1, 2012. However, the current prescription formulas may be used until June 30, 2012.
The regulation also explains the procedure in the event that the prescription does not contain the reimbursement level. In such a situation, the person dispensing the drug at the pharmacy will have the right to supplement this data by placing an appropriate annotation and his signature on the reverse of the prescription. In the case of a drug included in the list of reimbursed drugs with more than one level of payment, the pharmacist is obliged to issue the drug "for the highest payment specified in this list."
As before, the prescription must contain data such as the patient's address, his PESEL number, identifier of the NHF department competent for the place of residence of the patient, date of issue and execution, and details of the person issuing the prescription.
The ordinance also regulates the issue of issuing prescriptions for oneself or for the family. When writing out such a prescription, the doctor is obliged to additionally include the annotation "pro auctore" or "pro familia".
New prescription formulas have been questioned and protested by the medical community. Until February 25, the NRL suspended the decision to issue only full-paid prescriptions. We would like to remind you that doctors do not want to specify the level of drug reimbursement on the prescription, because this, in their opinion, should be handled by officials. Until then, a team consisting of representatives of the NRL, pharmacists and the Ministry of He alth is to work, which is to develop proposals for changes to the regulations in the new Reimbursement Act.
