Minister for Health

26 September 2022 - From 1 October 2022, Australians will pay less at the pharmacy for new and updated medicines on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) because of the Government’s Price Disclosure Policy.

From 1 October 2022, the Government is also listing additional medicines on the PBS to treat a number of conditions, including types of cancer and growth hormone deficiency in children.

This includes the listing of pembrolizumab (Keytruda) which will be expanded to treat patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck.
