A prescription medicine is medicine that needs your doctor’s authorisation before a pharmacist can sell it to you.
If you have a Visitors Plus policy with us, you might be covered for some of the cost of your prescription medicine.
If you need to buy prescription medicines, you may be able to claim back:
Each individual in a couple or family has the same limit as a single person ($300 per person, each calendar year), as long as the couple or family maximum benefit has not been used.
Refer to the policy document for more information about what you’re covered for.
Your doctor gives you a prescription for your medicine.
You purchase your medicine from a pharmacy and get a receipt. Make sure you ask for an itemised receipt so you have all the information needed to make your claim.
Make your claim and submit any relevant receipts to us.
Disclaimer: Prescription medicines are reimbursed minus the co-payment required under the PBS. To see the full list of PBS medicines and the current co-payment fee, visit the Department of Health website.
