  • Chemotherapy Regimens and High Cost Drugs arrangement from April 2018

    Published March 2018

    NHS England have confirmed that the National Tariff Chemotherapy Regimens list will not be updated in 2018/19, therefore the current list and associated Clinical Coding Standards for 2017/18 must continue to be used from 1st April 2018.

    We are continuing discussions with NHS England about the future arrangements for the coding of High Cost Drugs using OPCS-4 and will provide an update as soon as we are in a position to do so. In the meantime, please continue to capture high cost drugs using the National Tariff High Cost Drugs list 2015-16 and associated High Cost Drugs Clinical Coding Standards-OPCS-4. The standards document has been updated to reflect the addition of the drug Amikacin to coding standard HCDCS6. This was omitted when the standard was first introduced and was previously shown as a manual amendment in Coding Clinic Ref 111.

    The National Tariff Chemotherapy Regimens List 2017 – 18, Chemotherapy Regimens Clinical Coding Standards and Guidance OPCS-4 April 2017, National Tariff High Cost Drugs list 2015-16 and High Cost Drugs Clinical Coding Standard OPCS-4 are all available for download from Delen.
