Pharmacy Programs Data

The Australian Healthcare Associates have responsibility for administration of registration and claims for payment for the pharmacy programs funded under the Seventh Community Pharmacy Agreement (7CPA) under the banner of Pharmacy Programs Administrator. From 1 March 2014 to 31 January 2019 the Pharmacy Guild of Australia administered the pharmacy programs.

The 7CPA includes provision for a range of community pharmacy programs including the Home Medicines Review, Residential Medication Management Review, MedsCheck/Diabetes MedsCheck, Staged Supply, Rural Support Programs, Dose Administration Aids, Indigenous Dose Administration Aids, Rural Support Programs and other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Specific Programs.

Data for these programs under the 7CPA will continue to be provided on a monthly basis. Note: the number of services published for each month is based on the services claimed in that month, not the date services were delivered. As service providers are not required to lodge a claim until the end of the following calendar month after the delivery of a service, there may be some minor adjustments to total services processed by the PPA. For example, a service conducted on 10 April must be claimed by 31 May.

Ceased Programs:
The Sixth Community Pharmacy Agreement (6CPA) included funding for the Clinical Interventions Program. The Clinical Interventions Program provided payments to pharmacy owners to support pharmacists to identify, manage, and document medicine related issues. Pharmacies were entitled to claim incentive payments four times a year for the number of Clinical Interventions services provided in the relevant claiming period and hence the data was reported on a quarterly basis. The Clinical Interventions Program ceased on 30 June 2020.
