The Department of Health and Aged Care have advised the Take Home Naloxone (THN) Program has been updated to include new amounts payable for individual supplies of naloxone products due to indexation of PBS fees. These price changes will come into effect from 1 July 2023.
Any claims submitted with a date of supply on or before 30 June 2023 will be paid under the pricing arrangements that were in effect at the time of the supply (i.e. before the price changes). Previous pricing arrangements can be found in the Program Rules.
As per existing Program Rules, Authorised Alternative Suppliers do not receive payment for supply of naloxone products under the THN Program.
