Keep Your Prescriptions On File

It is highly advised to keep your prescriptions, both originals and repeats, on file. That way, the next time you place an order we will automatically match your original or repeats with the order and dispatch immediately, saving you considerable time, and meaning there is nothing more you need to do after check-out.

Prescription Pricing Types

Each prescription listed on our site will display prices for up to 5 different pricing types. You must choose the pricing type that is applicable to you. The different pricing types are explained below:

General

This price applies to a holder of a valid PBS prescription, who holds a valid Medicare card and who does not qualify for a concession, entitlement or repat price.

Concession

This price applies to a holder of a valid PBS prescription, who holds a valid Medicare card, who does not qualify for an entitlement or repat price and who holds any one of the following valid concession cards:

  1. Pensioner Concession Card
  2. Commonwealth Seniors Health Card
  3. Health Care Card
  4. Safety-Net Concession Card

Entitlement

 This price applies to a holder of a valid PBS prescription, who holds a valid Medicare card and who holds the following valid entitlement card:

  1. Safety-Net Entitlement Card

Repatriation

This price applies to a holder of a valid RPBS prescription, who holds a valid Medicare card, who does not qualify for an entitlement price and who holds any one of the following valid repatriation cards: 

  1. Gold Repatriation Health Card
  2. White Repatriation Health Card
  3. Orange Repatriation Pharmaceutical Benefits Card

Private

This price applies when you are not entitled to the general, concession, entitlement or repat price or when you want the private price to apply instead. In both of these cases your prescription will be dispensed as a private prescription, which is a non-PBS/non-RPBS prescription.
