PBS XML - missing dispensing rules

Page last updated: 24 September 2018

Stakeholder update

On 2 August 2018 Health sent out updated correspondence regarding the date issue with the PBS XML - missing dispensing rules, implementing a change to make General, Palliative Care and RPBS programs the same.

After correspondence from Software Venders, Health is producing a new test file with the changes back-dated 12 months. The new file will be distributed soon for testing. An implementation date will be arranged as soon as possible following testing, knowing that it cannot be implemented on a price change month. We are currently aiming for this to be included with the January data, depending on testing requirements.

For more information please contact Health via email to PBSlisting@health.gov.au.
