NSW pharmacies support S100 Co-Payment Removal

The Pharmacy Guild of Australia (NSW Branch) says it is pleased to support the NSW Government’s commitment to paying the patient co-payments for Section 100 (s100) Highly Specialised Drugs.

This commitment was made in March 2015 to help ease the financial burden for those in the community who have some cancers and other chronic conditions.

From 1 October 2015, co-payments for Section 100 Highly Specialised Drugs will be paid by the NSW Government for NSW residents, who are patients of NSW public hospital or authorised community prescribers in NSW.

In the initial rollout of the system, the NSW Government will pay the co-payment for HIV antiretroviral therapy, Hepatitis B medicines and clozapine dispensed in the community pharmacy setting.

Further information can be found on the Pharmacy Guild of Australia’s NSW Branch website or at NSW Health here.
