Special arrangements for image-based prescriptions extended

The federal government has extended the special arrangements for image-based prescriptions until the end of September, and has agreed to continue subsidising the cost of SMS for electronic prescriptions until June.

The special arrangement for image-based prescriptions allows doctors to email, text or fax a digital image of a paper prescription to the patient’s pharmacy following a telehealth consult.
