    Re: broken bulk / out of pocket

    Broken bulk:
    I was presented yesterday with a script for 84 Colazide capsules; as these only come sold in packs of 130 capsules, I've had to but a tub of 130 caps from the Wholesalers, but I'd only get paid for 84 caps on this script, and as I don't have any other patients on Colazide, I'll be stuck with the remaining 46 capsules on my shelf, probably until they go out of date; I therefore have endorsed the script "Claim Broken Bulk", so that the NHS will reimburse me for the full tub of 130 caps, and have written "broken bulk claimed 4/4/2008" on the box of capsules that is going to stay on my shelf, so that, in the unlikely event that I did get another Rx for colazide in the next 6 months, I'd know not to claim broken bulk for it again...
    Out-of-pocket expenses:
    I've had to order made-to-measure compression stockings from a specialist manufacturers, and they've charged me for Postage & packaging, so I've endorsed the script accordingly: "P+P, £7.50 out-of-pocket expense".
    Ze genuine Article, present & perfect!

        Of course if you break bulk for dressings, won't get paid.

        This is the form I used to use.
