Public Consultation – Draft Procedure Guidance and Forms for Listing Medicines on the PBS

Page last updated: 6 March 2019

The Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) provides timely, reliable and affordable access to necessary medicines for Australians. Improved processes and revised cost recovery arrangements support the Government’s commitment under the Strategic Agreement to improve the transparency, timeliness and efficiency of Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) listing processes.

On 1 March 2019, the Department of Health held a PBS Process Improvements Webinar Information Forum and discussed the details of Stage 1 PBS process improvements relating to the Intent to Apply step and pre-submission meetings processes. If you did not register for the webinar information forum before 1 March 2019 and would like to view the webinar, please register.

Following the information forum, the procedure guidance and forms is available for comments and feedback from 5 March 2019 until 20 March 2019.
