DPMQ

Business Definition – The Dispensed Price for Maximum Quantity (DPMQ) is the price for dispensing the maximum quantity of a product under a given prescribing rule. The DPMQ incorporates the price ex-manufacturer, all fees, mark-ups and patient contributions. DPMQ can be prefixed by pricing terms such as

  • Benchmark (also known as CommonwealthReimbursement or Determined)
  • Claimed (also known as Manufacturer's)

Developer Information

From discussion thread re "PB-MAN-DISPENSED-PRICE":

ps.allette.com.au:8080/ps/page/mps2-pharmcis/comments/314746 

Should be:

pbs:pricing/pbs:manufacturer/pbs:dpmq/pbs:price[@dispensing-rule = $dispensing-rule/pbs:amount

Similar to the Reimbursement DPMQ XPath.

23/OCT - From discussion thread re "DPMQ in Schedule and Website":

ps.allette.com.au:8080/ps/page/mps2-pharmcis/comments/315793 

The DPMQ depends on the pricing model of the program (pbs:listings-list). Every pbs:listings-list has its pricing model in the pbs:info/pbs:pricing-model element.

There are 5 pricing models:

ready-prepared
ready-prepared-no-premium
ready-prepared-no-premium-no-charge
infusible
extemporaneous

The reimbursement (a.k.a. Commonwealth) DPMQ may be found as follows for the different pricing models:

ready-prepared:
pbs:ready-prepared/pbs:pricing/pbs:reimbursement/pbs:dpmq/pbs:price[@dispensing-rule = $dispensing-rule]/pbs:amount

infusible:
pbs:infusible/pbs:pricing/pbs:reimbursement/pbs:dpmq/pbs:price[@dispensing-rule = $dispensing-rule]/pbs:amount

extemporaneous:
pbs:standard-formula-preparation/pbs:pricing/pbs:reimbursement/pbs:dpmq/pbs:price[@dispensing-rule = $dispensing-rule]/pbs:amount

ready-prepared-no-premium(-no-charge):
pbs:ready-prepared/pbs:pricing/pbs:prices/pbs:dpmq/pbs:price[@dispensing-rule = $dispensing-rule]/pbs:amount

ie. for the last one, no-premium, there is no single reimbursement DPMQ for the prescribing rule. The Commonwealth pays whatever the manufacturer is charging.

Cheers,
