To collaborate with a supplier on a funding application, you will need to first register as a separate organisation. Once you’re registered, a supplier can then invite your consultancy to access an application.
You can have multiple users registered to your organisation’s account.
PharmConnect is the only way to ask Pharmac to list a new medicine on the Pharmaceutical Schedule or widen access to an already funded medicine. The old paper form does not have the current questions, please do not use it to submit an application.
You’re an expert – we rely on you to supply good evidence to support your application. Check our application guide to see the kind of information we need before we can consider your application.
If your patient has needs that are not met by the Schedule, you may be able to apply for funded treatment through the Named Patient Pharmaceutical Assessment (NPPA) process. Your patient must have exceptional clinical circumstances.
If there is a medicine you think Pharmac should consider funding for New Zealanders, you can make an application using PharmConnect.
Funding a medicine is a major decision. We need to know it will create better health outcomes for New Zealanders – when compared to the other medicines we could fund. We have a fixed budget and a responsibility to make the most of that budget for New Zealanders.
You may be able to access funded treatment if that person's clinical circumstances are exceptional. Talk to a trusted health care professional about whether a Named Patient Pharmaceutical Assessment (NPPA) application may be appropriate. Only authorised prescribers can make a NPPA application.
