Dear Wairarapa District Health Board,
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.
