If your pharmacy regularly offers the co-payment discount to customers, you can set up a default co‑payment discount configuration so that the discount is applied to all eligible scripts you dispense.

When you set up your co-payment discount to apply to all eligible scripts, you can still choose to not apply the discount to an individual script from the Dispense Form.

The default Co-Payment behaviour can be set separately for Concessional and General scripts. This setting will apply when dispensing applicable scripts if the customer has no other co-payment rule applied, e.g. nursing home or customer specific scripts. Refer to Set up Co-Payment Discount, Apply set Co-Payment Discount to individual scripts and Exclude customers from Co-Payment Discount by Facility.

The options include:

  • Default Off - All
  • Default On - All
  • Default On - Concessional only
  • Default On - General only
