First Nations – About 60-day prescriptions (animation)

Selected PBS medicines can now be prescribed for 60-days. Ask your doctor if 60-day prescriptions is right for you.


Now, some medicines on the PBS can be prescribed for 60 days at once, giving you twice the medication on 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.
