PBS Change

HPS Pharmacies wish to advise that the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) listings for all strengths of Fragmin® have changed as follows:

Fragmin® Injection Syringe
Dalteparin sodium

From 1 June 2021, Fragmin® was designated ‘Supply Only’ on the PBS. This means that, while Fragmin® has been deleted from the Schedule, it may still be dispensed on the PBS using prescriptions written prior to 1 June 2021. Fragmin® prescriptions written after 1 June 2021 will no longer be eligible for PBS subsidies.

Retain this notice in a prominent position, including in other related business units for one month. Report any problems identified with medicines, vaccines or medical devices to the TGA.

Should you require further information regarding this matter, please contact your pharmacist at HPS Pharmacies.
