From 1 September 2015 new arrangements will be in place for providing or administering Botulinum Toxin to patients. There was some confusion with information provided to community so now a new factsheet is available to better understand how it will affect patients or consumers. The factsheet will be added to the PBS Department of Health website for viewing also.

Quick summary of factsheet:

  • Co-payments will apply for a public or private patient for each prescription of a botulinum toxin
    • Arrangements will be in place from prescriber for the co-payment to be collected by patient
      • Patients will not be required to take the prescription to the hospital pharmacy
        • PBS botulinum toxin products will not be provided through community pharmacies
