Best Practice Tariff

Knowledge * Excellence * Best Practice Tariff

The Best Practice Tariff is a mechanism to improve quality of services in rheumatology. It was introduced for the first time in 2013 to focus on the management of early inflammatory arthritis and to help units provide timely and intensive intervention.

Some units already have effective systems in place to manage early arthritis and are reimbursed in excess of the new tariff. NHS England has confirmed that where best practice currently exists and there are concerns about loss of income, local negotiations could take place with CCGs to protect this income.
