Release 2 supports the electronic submission of prescriptions to the Pricing Authority for reimbursement. Only electronic prescriptions can be sent to the Pricing Authority for reimbursement therefore until the regulations change, initially it will only be those prescriptions that have been sent to a patient’s nominated pharmacy that should be forwarded to the Pricing Authority electronically for reimbursement.

To support the electronic submission of prescriptions for reimbursement, there were a number of changes to the arrangements for endorsing and submitting prescriptions for pricing.


  1. Endorsing
  2. Exemption (apply patient exemption status onto the electronic message)

  8. Tokens – sending these to the Pricing Authority (note that the PA do not look at these for pricing)
  9. Disposing of tokens
  10. Advance payment timescales and EPS
  11. Schedule of payment EPS information
