Prescription pathway in Oz:

1.) check if drug available (registered) for prescribing in Oz
if so, 
2.) check if patient qualifies for subsidy
    2a) patient is war veteran 
         -> criteria =RPBS [unrestricted/restricted/authority]
    2b) patient is medicare member 
         -> criteria =-> criteria =RPBS [unrestricted/restricted/authority]
    2c) patient is neither -> private unsubsidized script
3.) check if drug qualifies for subsidy
    3a) drug available over the counter = "OTC"
    3b) drug is "prescription only", but not subsidized = "RX"
    3c) drug subsidised generally by Medicare = unrestricted
    3d) drug subsidized conditionally by Medicare = restricted
    3e) drug subsidized on special authority by Medicare = authority
    3f-h same for Veterans affairs as for Medicare in 3c-e
4.) if "restricted", check if conditions met
   a) if not => private script ("Rx")
   b) if met, subsidized script
5.) if "authority", launch dialog for authority number application
   a) if authority number granted, subsidized script
   b) else, private script
