88 Arrangements relating to payments

(1)

Where the Crown or a DHB gives notice of the terms and conditions on which the Crown or the DHB will make a payment to any person or persons, and, after notice is given, such a payment is accepted by any such person from the Crown or DHB, then—

(a)

acceptance by the person of the payment constitutes acceptance by the person of the terms and conditions; and

(b)

compliance by the person with the terms and conditions may be enforced by the Crown or DHB (as the case may be) as if the person had signed a deed under which the person agreed to the terms and conditions.

(2)

Any terms and conditions of which notice is given under subsection (1), unless they expressly provide otherwise, are deemed to include a provision to the effect that 12 weeks’ notice must be given of any amendment or revocation of the terms and conditions.

(3)

Every notice, and every amendment or revocation of a notice, must be published in the Gazette before the notice, amendment, or revocation takes effect; and, as soon as practicable, the Minister must present a copy to the House of Representatives.

(4)

No notice may be issued under this section that would bind Pharmac or NZBS.
