7CPA and No Cost Policy

The Seventh Community Pharmacy Agreement (7CPA) between the Australian Government and the Pharmacy Guild of Australia commenced on 1 July 2020 and runs until 30 June 2025. It recognises the key role played by community pharmacy in primary health care, through the delivery of Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) medicines and related services.

7CPA includes a number of initiatives and programs, including the Electronic Prescription Fee, which is paid to pharmacists to support the uptake of ePrescriptions in Australia. The upshot of these payments is that pharmacists can use eRx at no cost.

Use eRx at no cost

  • eRx fees are fully reimbursed from Medicare via PBS Online.
  • You receive the 15c incentive payment for every eligible script dispensed.
  • Medicare pays the incentive payment along with your other PBS payments, there is no need to submit reports or any other paperwork.
  • eRx will invoice you after you close a claim and payment is due in 30 days, well after you would have received your incentive payment from Medicare.
  • eRx will not charge you more than the 15c incentive payments you receive from Medicare.

Watch ePrescriptions in action

What our customers think

  • “eRx allows my practitioners to send prescriptions electronically directly to the patient, so they instantly have their prescription. It saves admin time faxing and posting, and allows us more time to focus on helping our patients.”
    – Char MacDonald - Abermain Surgery and NSW/ACT AAPM Committee Member
  • “We love using eRx. It’s great when those barcodes come through, scanning them makes dispensing so much easier. eRx improves patient safety by reducing transcription errors which is important to us.”
    – Alex Keipert - Pharmacy Owner - Mudgee NSW
  • “I commend eRx and ePrescriptions, as it has reduced my workload of printing a minimum of over 100 scripts every week, in addition to having to sign each script twice and having to handwrite the details of the S8 scripts. Also the Real Time Prescription Monitoring (RTPM) has helped in checking the status with restricted scripts.”
    – Dr Mario Fernando - Principal GP at Lima Medical Pty Ltd, Bendigo VIC
  • “Just a note to tell you how happy I am with eRx and ePrescriptions. When I scan prescriptions all the information is immediately there and it saves so much time. Also, ctg scripts are caught, (which often get missed as I notice from repeats we get from other pharmacies), which allows us to provide a more efficient service to our customers.”
    – Glenna Hinschen - Proserpine Pharmacy
