Use MediSecure eScript at No Cost
MediSecure fees (Electronic Prescription Fees) are charged to a pharmacy for using the MediSecure ETP service when scanning the barcode on prescriptions.
These fees are fully reimbursed to the pharmacy from Medicare via PBS Online. The use of MediSecure ETP is totally funded under the 6th Community Pharmacy Agreement (6CPA) which commenced on 1 July 2015 and continues until 30 June 2020.
- You receive the 15c incentive payment for every eligible barcoded script dispensed.
- Medicare pays the 15c along with your other PBS payments. You do not need to submit any reports or other paper work.
- MediSecure will not charge you more than the 15c incentive payments you receive from Medicare.
- MediSecure is required to levy GST which you then claim in your BAS.
Non PBS pharmacies can also scan MDS eScripts at no cost, receiving the benefits of scanning – improved staff efficiency and dispensing workflow.
