Tender Closed

PHARMAC has resolved to award tenders for Sole Subsidised Supply Status and Hospital Supply Status for some products included in the 2019/20 Invitation to Tender, dated 1 November 2019.

PHARMAC has resolved to award tenders for Sole Subsidised Supply Status and Hospital Supply Status for some products included in the 2019/20 Invitation to Tender, dated 1 November 2019.

Some of the pharmaceuticals that will be delisted when the period of Sole Subsidised Supply/Hospital Supply Status commences may be subject to existing listing contracts with PHARMAC. Suppliers of pharmaceuticals that are subject to such contracts should continue to supply their pharmaceuticals under those contracts. PHARMAC will continue to subsidise those pharmaceuticals accordingly until such time as those pharmaceuticals are delisted.

Notification of Product Changes (NOPC) forms, Containered Trade Product Pack (CTPP) codes and Pharmacodes

Please note that for any changes (price change, pack size change, new listing etc) to be effective in the Pharmaceutical Schedule (including Section H), suppliers are required to notify any changes to PHARMAC and the Pharmacy Guild of New Zealand by:

  • For new listings, by 4pm on 12 July 2020 or the 5th of the month prior to listing, whichever is earlier
  • For price changes, by 4pm on the 12th of the month prior to the date of subsidy change

PHARMAC cannot list a product (and pharmacies cannot claim) without this information. 

More information about this process and NOPC forms can be found on our website.

Suppliers are required to ensure that a Pharmacode has been obtained from the Pharmacy Guild of New Zealand(external link)  and that a CTPP code has been obtained from the New Zealand Universal List of Medicines.(external link) Pharmacodes and CTPP codes must be provided to PHARMAC by the 5th of the month prior to the date of listing, or 10 business days following the market notification date (whichever is earliest). PHARMAC cannot list a product (and pharmacies cannot claim) without the correct Pharmacode.
