Dear Ministry of Health,
I have just been forced to pay $45 for three general painkillers prescribed by a Dentist.
I was informed that due to the script being from a specialist there is a higher cost per medication than if it was from a GP where I would have only paid $15.
GP per med - $5
Specialist per med - $15
Can you please explain why I am being charged what feels like daylight robbery due to the script being from a specialist compared to GP for the same medication.
Ministry of Health
