Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) information
These are medicines
listed on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) and are the only medicines
the government will subsidise. The complete list can be found at https://www.pbs.gov.au/pbs/home These
prices are set by the government and under current legislation, any subsidised medicine
cannot be discounted. Prescription Record Form (PRF) stickers will be supplied
with all PBS prescriptions and Safety Net Totals will be kept for patients.
Where no price appears in the PBS field, the prescription is only available as
a Private Prescription. In certain circumstances a PBS listed medicine may not
be eligible to be subsidised for certain patients. In these cases, the patient
will have to pay the Private Prescription price - see Private Prescriptions
containing PBS prescriptions: If your order contains a PBS prescription you may be eligible for free
standard postage within Australia. To see whether you are eligible please refer
to the Standard Postage table here.
