Medicare Safety Net & Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) Safety Net


   
Overview

Medicare Safety Net

 

If you need to see a doctor or have tests regularly you could benefit from the Medicare Safety Net.  Once you reach a safety net threshold, visits to your doctor or having tests may end up costing you less. 

 

 

Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) Safety Net

 

If you and your family need a lot of medicines in any year, you could benefit from the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) Safety Net.  Once you reach a safety net threshold for medicines through the PBS in a calendar year, all PBS medicines are free for the rest of the year. 

 

If you need a lot of medicines, it is a good idea to keep a record of how much you pay for your prescriptions.

 

 

Refer below for more information and to register for the Medicare Safety Net and PBS Safety Net.
