Universal Claim Framework (UCF) – When should I print a prescription form, and where should I send them once dispensed?

Our colleagues at National Services Scotland (NSS) have produced this table, which makes it clear when a paper form is needed, and where it should end up going. Payments against claims generated on UCF are completely electronic – the paper doesn’t act as a trigger for PSD as is the case with your “normal” barcoded prescriptions. The only service for which forms should end up in your prescription bundle at the end of the month is MAS, and this is solely because there is an eligibility criteria for the service and a signature is needed for payment verification/counter fraud purposes – nothing to do with payment at all.
