We encourage everyone to use PHARMConnect to make applications. If there's some reason you can't use PHARMConnect, we still want to hear from you.
When to use PHARMConnect
Use PHARMConnect to ask PHARMAC to:
- fund a new medicine or
- widening the access to a medicine that is already funded, for example, different indications or different patient groups.
Use the Named Patient Pharmaceutical Assessment (NPPA) process to seek funding for a specific person.
Use the notification of product changes (NOPC) form to add or change the details of a medicine to the Pharmaceutical Schedule.
We know clinicians and consumers are unlikely to have some of the information we need. As such, we offer different forms and registration types to support these users to make applications.
