Outcomes from Price Disclosure

Indicative Prices - Disclosure Cycles

Indicative price disclosure-related price changes are being made available in advance of the effective date to assist companies and other stakeholders. They will come into effect under the National Health Act 1953 and the National Health (Pharmaceutical Benefits) Regulations 2017 and have already been announced publicly - see 'Outcomes from Price Disclosure (SPD)'.

These prices are indicative only and may change if there are changes in prices or listings before the Reduction Day (e.g., lower price / pricing quantity changes).

Indicative prices are published for F2 combination drugs that are taking a direct price disclosure reduction.

Indicative prices are not published for any medicines that are:

  • not taking a price disclosure reduction in the respective cycle;
  • new brands after the date of publication;
  • brands with other price changes on the reduction day;
  • combination drugs taking flow-on price disclosure reductions; or
  • F2 combination drugs taking flow-on price disclosure reductions.

 Those other prices will be available publicly on the Effective Day.
