Why upgrade ScriptMAP 2020 now?
Since the MA Agreement was only publicly announced in May 2017, the Guild has been working to accurately and fully understand the implications for prices of various PBS listed medicines. In addition it is also timely, given fees and base year changes.
Why can’t ScriptMAP 2020 continue to be available while the upgrading occurs?
ScriptMAP 2020 requires complex alterations to its IT infrastructure which is best done while ‘offline’.
Will there be compensation as I purchased ScriptMAP 2020 and now I am not able to use it for a month?
The Guild will offer people who have purchased a subscription a full one month subscription, free of charge, to be added on at the end of their current subscription.
Does the MA Agreement mean my current ScriptMAP 2020 report is inaccurate?
The current report is accurate, based on the inputs at the time. With changes in Government policy as well as parameters (such as the consumer price inflation, to which some fees are indexed), re-running your ScriptMAP 2020 report once it has been upgraded will provide more up-to-date forecasts.
I have other questions about ScriptMAP 2020, my subscription, and access – who do I contact?
Your queries can be directed in the first instance to your Branch. In addition you can contact the Guild National Secretariat on 02 6270 1888 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
