Submission of Paperwork
As previously advised, 100 pharmacies will be randomly selected each month to submit their ‘yellow bag’. If your pharmacy is selected, you will be contacted by Healthmail and notified that you must submit your paperwork (yellow bag) at the end of the month. The deadline for the receipt of supporting paperwork will be outlined in the email sent by the PCRS and usually is by 5pm on the 5th day of the month. In the event that this deadline falls on a Saturday / Sunday / Public Holiday, supporting paperwork should be received by PCRS on the next working day. Currently, pharmacies are not required to attach the invoices to the UCFs in their end of month bundle. For exceptional items, pharmacies may be required to scan and submit supporting documentation by Healthmail to PCRS.PPUInvoices@hse.ie with the GMS pharmacy number and contact details clearly identified.
Please note that there is currently no requirement for third party verification.
