PBS GROWTH HORMONE PROGRAM

Administration arrangements for the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) Growth Hormone Program from 1 September 2015

From 1 September 2015, the process by which prescribers receive approval to prescribe growth hormone was aligned with other authority-required PBS subsidised medicines.

Prescribers will now apply to the Department of Human Services for the supply of growth hormone. Prescribing information, including Authority Application forms and other relevant documentation (as applicable) are available on the Department of Human Services website.
