Following publication of the original article , the authors identified some errors in the reported study years:
Corrections (marked in bold):
Participants were individually randomized (1–1 ratio) to either be exempted from the standard $5 charge per prescription item for one year (2020–2021) (n = 591) or usual care (n = 469). (Abstract under “Interventions”)
The primary outcome was length of stay (measured by hospital bed-days) within the year of the study (1 Feb 2020 to 31 Jan 2021) (Methods).
The original article  has been corrected.
