Some PBS medicines need written authority approval due to their clinical use or other special features.

Changes to the Online PBS Authorities system

We’ve made improvements to the Online PBS Authorities system. Read more on the Health Professional Education website.

Some Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) subsidised medicines require your patients to meet clinical criteria. You’ll need written authority approval to prescribe them.

This is due to their clinical use or other special features.

These medicines can’t be PBS-subsidised without authority approval. We can’t grant retrospective approval.
