Amendments are proposed to the National Health (Pharmaceutical Benefits) (Conditions of approval for approved pharmacists) Determination 2007.
All pharmacists are required to comply with these conditions as part of their approval under Part VII of the National Health Act 1953 (the Act). The amendments will clarify the intention of the Act with regard to claims for payment for the supply of pharmaceutical benefits.
