Coalition delays its challenge to Labor’s 60-day prescription plan. How did we get here?

Key Points
  • The Coalition has delayed its planned disallowance motion on the government’s 60-day dispensing policy.
  • The plan would allow eligible patients to buy two months’ worth of subsidised medicine with a single prescription.
  • The Pharmacy Guild has opposed the plan, saying it would lead to financial loss and closure of pharmacies.

Labor’s 60-day dispensing plan will allow people to buy more medication on one prescription and is set to start on 1 September.
