1  Name of Determination

                   This Determination is the National Health (Subsection 84C(7)) Determination 2010.

4  Definitions

                   In this Determination:

Act means the National Health Act 1953.

additional patient charge has the same meaning as in the National Health (Pharmaceutical Benefits) Regulations 2017.

extemporaneously‑prepared pharmaceutical benefit means a pharmaceutical benefit that is not a ready‑prepared pharmaceutical benefit.

ready‑prepared pharmaceutical benefit means a brand of a pharmaceutical item for which there is a determination under subsection 85(6) of the Act.

5  Manner of ascertaining price for pharmaceutical benefits and repatriation pharmaceutical benefits

             (1)  For subsection 84C(7) of the Act, the price for a pharmaceutical benefit or repatriation pharmaceutical benefit is the total of the following:

                     (a)  the Commonwealth price for the supply of the benefit by an approved pharmacist, worked out in accordance with a determination under paragraph 98B(1)(a) of the Act;

                     (b)  the amount mentioned in section 6.

Note 1:       Subsection 84C(8) of the Act provides that a manner of ascertaining the price for a pharmaceutical benefit or repatriation pharmaceutical benefit determined under subsection 84C(7) of the Act must be based on:

(a)    for a pharmaceutical benefit that is a listed brand of a pharmaceutical item—the approved ex‑manufacturer price or a proportional ex‑manufacturer price of the brand of the pharmaceutical item that was in force on the first day of the month of the year in which the supply occurs; and

(b)    for any other pharmaceutical benefit or a repatriation pharmaceutical benefit—the basic wholesale price of each ingredient that is applicable on the day on which the supply occurs.

                   The calculation of the Commonwealth price takes as the basis the approved ex‑manufacturer price or a proportional ex‑manufacturer price (see paragraph 98B(2)(a) of the Act) or the basic wholesale price (see paragraph 98B(2)(b) of the Act).

Note 2:       Paragraph 84C(8)(c) of the Act provides that the manner determined under subsection 84C(7) of the Act must provide for the addition of any fees and other amounts determined by the Tribunal for paragraph 98B(2)(c) of the Act. The Commonwealth price includes any fees and amounts determined by the Tribunal for that paragraph.

             (2)  However, the price for a pharmaceutical benefit or repatriation pharmaceutical benefit must not be more than the amount that the approved supplier may charge for the supply of the benefit under subsection 87(2) or (3) of the Act.

6  Additional amount

(1)  For paragraph 84C(8)(d) of the Act, the amounts are as follows:

(a)  for a ready‑prepared pharmaceutical benefit, other than an admixed ready‑prepared pharmaceutical benefit ‑ the sum of:

  (i)  $1.25; and

(ii)  the amount of the additional patient charge;

(b)  for an extemporaneously‑prepared pharmaceutical benefit or an admixed ready‑prepared pharmaceutical benefit ‑ the sum of:

  (i)  $1.61; and

(ii)  the amount of the additional patient charge.

             (2)  In this section:

admixed ready‑prepared pharmaceutical benefit means a pharmaceutical benefit mentioned in Schedule 1 to the determination under paragraph 98C(1)(b) of the Act.

Note:          Pharmaceutical benefits that involve the admixture of ready‑prepared ingredients are set out in Schedule 1 to the determination under paragraph 98C(1)(b) of the Act.
