PHARMACY SOFTWARE PROVIDERS CERTIFIED FOR NHF

Pharmacy Software Providers, Hugh Myrie & Associates and AEJ & Associates have been certified as conforming with the required specification outlined by the National Health Fund (NHF) for processing NHF benefits. The Providers were certified by Advanced Integrated Systems (AIS), which is contracted by the NHF to provide transaction processing services. All claims to the NHF will be adjudicated by AIS.

The Pharmacy Software computerises all aspects of pharmacy operations and provide real time processing of NHF claims. This will enable Providers to know immediately if beneficiaries are qualified to receive benefits. Public Sector pharmacies are also installing these systems to improve their service to the public.

NHF Provider pharmacies will have to acquire the updated Pharmacy Software from the vendors to be able to process NHF Claims. Pharmacies that have registered as providers for the National Health Fund and have not yet updated their system must contact their Software Provider.

The Government has approved the establishment of the National Health Fund, to provide additional financing for healthcare. The Fund will assist individuals to meet the cost of filling prescriptions for specified chronic illnesses. It will also provide financial assistance for primary health care through a Health Promotion and Protection Fund for private and public sector organisations and a Health Support Fund for the public sector.

The NHF provides assistance to persons who are certified by a registered private or public doctor as having one or more of the specified medical conditions, and who register with the NHF. Once approved, the beneficiary is issued with a NHF card and will be able to obtain assistance with purchase of drugs from approved participating pharmacies. The NHF pays a fixed contribution to the price set by the pharmacy for drugs approved by the NHF. The beneficiary is required to pay the difference.
