End of Active Ingredient Prescribing Pharmacy Grace Period 31 July 2021

From 1 August 2021, new PBS and RPBS prescriptions that do not meet active ingredient prescribing requirements cannot be dispensed as PBS/RPBS prescriptions, and will need to be reissued in alignment with active ingredient prescribing requirements, or dispensed as private prescriptions (with associated out of pocket costs to consumers).

The attached fact sheet for pharmacists and prescribers, is to advise them of the end of the pharmacy grace period, and what they will need to do to ensure they are ready for 1 August 2021.
