Update Format of the Unique Pharmacy Prescription Number

The format of the Unique Pharmacy Prescription Number (UPPN) used when making a claim to PBS Online has been updated.

The original format was MFSYMMDDscriptnumber, has been updated to MFSYYMMDDscriptnumber.
 i.e. leading MFS, YY = year, MM = month in numbers, DD = day of the month, scriptnumber = daily script number of the dispensed item padded with leading zeros to create a 5 digit number. For example, the first script dispensed on the 7th of June 2022 will have a UPPN of MFS22060700001.

Only scripts dispensed once you update to 7.2.2 will have this format. You may notice the updated UPPN on the Online Status screen for a dispensed item and in PBS reports.
