Labor’s 60-day dispensing changes pass Senate


The government’s new cheaper medicine rules have cleared the Senate and will give over six million Australians access to cheaper medicines.

The changes had been threatened with the Coalition making a move to block the motion in the Senate on Thursday after key independents signed on to Labor’s plan.

The 60-day dispensing changes are expected to save patients one point six billion dollars over the first four years; it will be applied to 320 common medicines and comes into effect next month.
