Remove copayment for patient continuity of care and safety
We have a patient that went to a different Pharmacy to discount his copayment and an interaction was not picked up and he ended up in hospital.
So we now carry the burden of discounting his copayment to stop him "shopping around" to provide continuity of care at a cost to us.
This should not be happening.
Why the contribution is important
Removing the copayment would make a it easier to access medicines where a person pleases. Not just what is cheapest. It will also helo communities in rural areas with no access to discounters.
