You can set these fees to always be at the maximum value by checking the corresponding Use max. allowed govt fee checkbox in Dispense Options. This means each time the Government adjust their fees, Minfos will automatically adjust the value accordingly.
 However, if you have manually set the fee to a different value:

  • If the Government maximum fee is increased, then the field in Minfos will not be changed and remain as the value you have set

If the Government maximum fee is decreased, then the field will automatically adjust to the maximum allowable fee

Your Minfos software automatically collects the updates and imports them at the correct time.

Note: If your dispense update has not imported on the 1st of the month, please refer to these instructions to manually import your dispense updates.
