Cost

You will not be charged for medicines supplied when you have been admitted as patient. When you are discharged from the hospital the doctors may need to write a prescription which can be dispensed at our pharmacies. It will incur the same PBS co-payment as community pharmacies. The amount you pay, even for non-PBS medications, can contribute to your safety net threshold for the calendar year.

Ask the pharmacist for more information.

If you have any of the following cards, please bring with these with you when presenting your prescription to the pharmacy department:
 
  • Medicare card
  • healthcare card
  • repat card
  • safety net card 
  • pensioner concession card
  • Commonwealth Seniors Health card
