Page last updated: 24 June 2019

The Department of Health and Medicines Australia have been working since late 2017 to deliver on commitments to streamline medicines listing processes and revise cost recovery arrangements as set out under clause 10 of the Strategic Agreement.

To support introduction of Stage 1 changes from 1 July 2019, the following PBS web pages have been updated:

The PBS Process Improvements web page content has been updated. Procedure Guidance for all new processes is available via this web page.

The Cost Recovery web page – to reflect the new fees and charges applicable from 1 July. This page also includes the revised Cost Recovery Administrative Guidelines and the Cost Recovery Implementation Statement (CRIS).

The PBS Forms web page – new forms available for Pre-submission, Submission, Pricing and List Management services.

Further updates to PBS website content will be rolled out over the next few months.
