The Australian Medicare system provides Pharmaceutical Prescriptions at subsidised prices for most people in Australia.

Some groups, those that hold concession cards, have these Prescriptions subsidised at a greater rate than others.

Normal prices for Prescriptions in Australia are currently:

  • up to $6.60 for concession card holders.
  • up to $41.00 for general patients.

For people who need a lot of prescriptions in a year, there is a further benefit, the “Pharmaceutical Benefits Safety Net“.

This ensures even higher subsidies for everyone, once they have spent a certain amount on Prescriptions in the year.

The 2020 PBS Safety Net thresholds are:.

  • $316.80 for concession card holders (about 48 standard prescriptions).
  • $1,486.80 for general patients (about 36 standard prescriptions).

Once you reach that threshold, you need to apply for a PBS Safety Net card to get the cheaper Prescription Medicines.

Your Prescriptions after that will then be either:

  • Free for concession card holders.
  • Up to $6.60 for general patients.
