DAAs are devices or systems designed to assist consumers in the community to better manage their medicines, with the objective of avoiding medication misadventure and associated hospitalisation.
The devices usually consist of a sheet of hermetically sealed blisters of medicines set out in a calendar pack that must be tamper proof once packed. Each dose compartment contains either single dose/s of one medication type or multiple dose/s of one or more medication types for a particular time and date.
An incentive payment will be paid four times per year to Eligible Community Pharmacies participating in this priority area that meet the Program requirements and QCPP accreditation requirements when providing a DAA service.
This incentive payment specifically relates to service delivery to patients living within the community [and excludes patients who reside in a Government Funded Residential Aged Care Facility (RACF) or a correctional facility].
To receive incentive payments for providing a DAA service for any eligible Claiming Period you MUST complete and lodge a valid PPI Periodic payment(s) application (Claim form) to the Department of Human Services (Medicare) by the eligible Claiming Period due date.
