Detail about this decision
In 2017 PHARMAC issued Requests for Proposals (“RFPs”) for:
The RFPs were for non-exclusive national agreements for listing in the Pharmaceutical Schedule.
After completing the RFP evaluation processes and consulting on the provisional Agreement reached with Intermed, PHARMAC has decided to list Intermed’s range of needles and syringes and respiratory care products in Part III of Section H of the Pharmaceutical Schedule.
DHBs that purchase Intermed’s needles and syringes and respiratory care products must do so under the terms and conditions and at the prices included in the Agreement, from 1 November 2018. DHBs can continue to choose which needles and syringes and respiratory care products they purchase.
PHARMAC expects to consult on further agreements with suppliers of needles and syringes and respiratory care products over the next few months.
