hiv and medicare ineligible

HIV antiretroviral medication is affordable for most Australian residents living with HIV, because Medicare subsidises the cost of HIV medication through the Australian Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS).  People living with HIV who are not eligible for Medicare can find it costly to access their HIV antiretroviral medication. People living with HIV who are  ineligible for Medicare have several different options to access their HIV medication in NSW.

If you’re travelling to Australia it is recommended you organise your supply of HIV medication, before you arrive in Australia. If you’re already living in Australia, you can access your medication by either importing your personal HIV medication from your home country or import it from an online chemist for your own personal use.

Our Factsheet: Getting your HIV medication without Medicare offers several different options for people living with HIV who are ineligible for Medicare to access their HIV antiretroviral medication.
