Now, some medicines on the PBS can be prescribed for 60 days at once, giving you twice the medication for the cost of a single prescription.
Medicines included in the measure will become available in stages.
By September 2024, 60-day prescriptions will be available for more than 300 medicines on the PBS.
So if you have an ongoing health condition that’s managed with a medicine that’s on the PBS, have a yarn with your doctor or health worker to see if a 60-day prescription is right for you.
