Medicine funding application

This page will help you take the first steps to submit a medicine funding application for New Zealanders.
Before we can consider an application, we need enough information to assess it.

PharmConnect: Your application portal

PharmConnect is the system that lets you submit the information that we will need before we consider funding a new medicine for New Zealanders.

See Pharmac’s funding process

You can also use PharmConnect to ask Pharmac to widen access to a medicine that is already funded, such as for different indications (conditions) or different patient groups.
