From Minfos version 6.4.2 a new Price Indicator has been added to the Dispense Form to show how the price to customer has been determined.

When the price to customer is not using the standard PBS or private pricing formula, the indicator will display. This is particularly helpful where a price has not been set for a quantity that you dispense often. 

The Price Indicator will inform you that no price is set, or that the price is being calculated using the set price for a different quantity of the selected drug. You can then set a price for this drug/quantity.

Orange Price Indicator

An orange icon informs you that the price has been calculated, using the set price for a different quantity of the selected drug.

No icon will display when
