A correctly completed prescription, in accordance with the provisions of the new reimbursement act, conditions its implementation. Incorrectly issued means that the pharmacist in the pharmacy will not issue you the reimbursed drug and you will have to return to the doctor so that he can issue a new, correctly completed one. What should a perfect, perfectly filled recipe look like?

  • patient's address (zip code, city name, street, house number and apartment number)
  • Patient's PESEL
  • identifier of the NHF branch competent for his place of residence
  • date of issue and delivery of the prescription and details of the person issuing the document (signature and stamp)

The regulations also specify the size of the prescription form: width 9 - 11 cm, length 20 - 21.5 cm. Old prints may be in circulation until June 2012.


Getting the prescription correctly by the doctor is extremely important for the patient, who will avoid re-visiting for the correction of the prescription.
