Products supplied under the National Blood Agreement

The National Blood Agreement describes how health ministers determine which products are available and funded under the national blood arrangements. Funding for these products and services comes:

  • 63% from the Australian Government
  • 37% from state and territory governments.

We are responsible for procuring the products that health ministers agree to make available. We include these products in the National Product Price List (below).

We then forward this list to health ministers for approval as part of the National Supply Plan and Budget.

Non-funded approved blood products

Some blood products have Therapeutic Goods Administration(Opens in a new tab/window) approval, but do not appear on our National Product Price List.

You may be able to buy these products directly from the supplier. However, the National Blood Agreement does not cover funding for them. This means you must arrange separate payment for them.

Changes to the product price list

Changes and additions to the products available under the national blood arrangements are subject to an approval process.

The NBA uses a multi-criteria analysis framework to assess any proposed changes to publicly funded products or services. We may also refer proposed changes to the Medical Services Advisory Committee (MSAC)(Opens in a new tab/window) for further assessment.

Recent changes are advised in News and updates.

Proposing a change to a publicly funded product or service

Any changes or additions to publicly funded products or services can be proposed by:

  • a member of a patient group
  • a product or service supplier
  • another type of interested party.

You will need to provide evidence to support your proposal. This should include an evidence-based evaluation of the product or service you nominate.

Recent changes or additions are advised in News and updates.
