PHARMAC - Proposal to reinstate monthly dispensing on various pharmaceuticals

PHARMAC is proposing to remove 'stat' dispensing (i.e. three months all-at-once dispensing) on several pharmaceuticals used to treat common conditions eg hydrocortisone cream, prednisone oral liquid, Beta Creams, Dermol, Epilim etc. as they believe the costs outweigh savings from reduced dispensing fees. NZNO is concerned about the impact on vulnerable consumers, including children.
