Transition

Welcome from the Pharmacy Programs Administrator. On 1 February 2019, we commenced operations administering, processing and paying claims associated with the 23 Community Pharmacy Programs funded under the Sixth Community Pharmacy Agreement (6CPA).

This page provides important information about the transition of these services from the Pharmacy Guild of Australia (the Guild) to the Pharmacy Programs Administrator.

From 1 February 2019, all claims and applications must be submitted to the Pharmacy Programs Administrator. The Guild is responsible for processing and paying claims it received up to and including 31 January 2019, including subsequent resubmissions in relation to those claims. Claiming transition arrangements vary slightly by Program, so please refer to the Program Transition Guide section below for details.

Please note that the Program Rules for the 23 Community Pharmacy Programs have not changed and continue to be determined by the Department of Health in consultation with stakeholders.

Our new Registration and Claiming Portal is accessible via this website’s homepage and via the navigation bar at the top of this web page and most pages on this website. 

We highly recommend that you read the Portal Transition Guide before accessing the new Portal for the first time. This document provides guidance for previous users of the Guild’s 6CPA Portal about how to transition to our new Portal.

The Program Transition Guide provides information about the specific transition arrangements for each of the 23 Programs.
