Dimension Prime Network benefit options – DSP for chronic PMB medicine only
 
Beneficiaries on the Dimension Prime Network benefit options who currently use chronic PMB medicine will be required to obtain their chronic PMB medicine from a designated service provider (DSP), Faranani Health Services, as from 1 April 2014. A 60% co-payment on the benefit amount of the medicine will apply if a beneficiary chooses to use a non-DSP (i.e. obtain the medicine from a pharmacy/dispensing doctor and not from the appointed network practice). A Dimension Prime Network formulary will also apply to chronic PMB medicine. This approach is required to ensure the continued viability of the Dimension Prime Network benefit options, as well as ensuring a sustained lower subscription.
