Drugs listed within a therapeutic group are therapeutically interchangeable with other drugs in the same group, that is they are of similar safety, efficacy and provide similar health outcomes.

The government subsidises all drugs within a group up to the level of the lowest price drug. For drugs in F1, any difference between the subsidised price and the price of the drug used by the patient is called a therapeutic group premium and is paid by the patient.

'T' located immediately before an amount in the premium column indicates a therapeutic group premium which applies to that particular item.
