Stoma Appliance Scheme claiming for associations

Claim a reimbursement for products you supply to your members under the Stoma Appliance Scheme (SAS).

The Stoma Appliance Scheme (SAS) provides free stoma appliances and products to people with a stoma. If you or your members need more information, read about the Stoma Appliance Scheme on the Department of Health and Aged Care website.

Claim a SAS reimbursement

You can claim a reimbursement for products you’ve supplied to your members under the SAS.

To claim, upload your electronic claim file through Health Professional Online Services (HPOS).

You need a Provider Digital Access (PRODA) account to access HPOS. If you don’t have one, register for an Individual account.

You’ll also need to register your association as an organisation in PRODA and link the account to HPOS.

  1. Log in to HPOS using PRODA.
  2. Go to My programs.
  3. Select Stoma Appliance Scheme and ParaQuad Program.
  4. Select Choose File.
  5. Select Send.

You no longer need to send us copies of the claim paperwork or patient forms. You need to keep the record for 2 years.

For any questions about a SAS claim, you can contact the PBS Complex Drugs Programs enquiry line.

Reason codes

After we’ve processed your claim, you’ll get a Reconciliation Statement. The statement includes reason codes to help you correct claiming issues and explain the amount you’ve been paid.
