Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) for Software Developers

This website contains information and resources to assist Software Developers with updating their prescribing, dispensing and claiming software with PBS data.


The Department of Health and Aged Care is modernising the consumption and data distribution model for the monthly PBS Schedule data. In the future, PBS Schedule data will be distributed in a relational format that is more readily consumable and predictable. The Department will cease to provide ALL existing forms of data currently distributed to vendors at an agreed point in time. More information is available on the PBS Data Distribution Project page. Subscribe to the PBS Developer email list to receive email notification of PBS Developer News available through this website.
