Opioid Dependence Treatment (ODT) Community Pharmacy Program

As noted during the initial stages of the ODT Community pharmacy Program rollout, in recognition of the short program implementation timeframe claiming deadlines were not initially imposed. This transition period was in place until 30 November 2023. 

Based on the above, the PPA would like to remind all Service Providers that regular PPA portal claiming deadlines have now been implemented and came into effective as of 1 December 2023.


What does this mean for my Pharmacy?

All claims for services performed from 1 November 2023 onwards must be lodged by the end of the calendar month following the service, e.g. claims for services performed during November 2023 must be lodged by 31 December 2023.

Service claims that are outside the claiming timeframe or are incomplete cannot be submitted and will not be paid.

Claims for services performed between 1 July and 31 October 2023 are no longer eligible to be submitted via the PPA Portal.
