Changes to PBS Authorities System

Services Australia has been working with the Department of Health and Aged Care to increase the number of PBS items that can be approved in ‘real time’ using the Online PBS Authorities System (the system).

Prescribers can submit certain Authority Required ‘Written’ (written) PBS medicines on the schedule using the system. Over time, more written PBS medicines across broader medicine groups will be added to the system for ‘real time’ approval.

In the future, the system’s digital capability will be improved to support the transition of Authority Required (Written) medicines for online access.
