The Department of Health and Aged Care and the Pharmacy Programs Administrator (PPA) advise that the RPTA Program Rules and an updated webpage are now live, to provide pharmacies with more details about the new program commencing 1 September 2023. This includes FAQs, factsheets and the RPTA payment matrix.

The RPTA Program Rules provide pharmacies with detailed information about the program, how it will operate and the payments available. Pharmacies should ensure they have read and understood the RPTA Program Rules and have confirmed their eligibility prior to registering and applying for the program. Registration and applications will not open in the PPA Portal until October.

Pharmacies will receive further communication when the program is released in the PPA Portal. Closer to this time a Portal User Guide providing detailed information regarding the registration and application process for the RPTA program will also be made available under the Program Rules and other Downloads section of the RPTA webpage.
