This paper aims to provide some insight into the operations of the PBS by examining the markets for 3 categories of popular drugs that make a significant contribution to the overall cost of the PBS. While there are around 600 unique entities listed on the PBS, 30 of these were responsible for over half the cost of the PBS in 2000-01.
