Notification of delay of decision on proposal to reinstate monthly dispensing on various pharmaceuticals (remove ‘stat’ dispensing)
PHARMAC would like to advise all interested parties that there will be a delay in the decision on a proposal to remove the ‘three months dispensed all-at-once’ (‘stat’) dispensing rule from various pharmaceuticals from 1 March 2015.
Consultation on this proposal has now closed. Some significant issues were raised in consultation responses, and we require additional time to consider them before a decision can be made on the proposal.
This delay will mean that a decision will not be made in time for 1 March 2015 funding changes. We do not currently have a firm timeframe for a decision to be made on this proposal but a decision will likely be made, and subsequently notified, within the next two months.
If you have any questions about this notification, please contact Geraldine MacGibbon, Senior Therapeutic Group Manager/Team Leader, by email at email@example.com.
