Monthly contribution

A contribution equivalent to a single Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme co-payment is payable by each patient of the National EB Dressing Scheme per Standard Order. To be eligible for concessional benefit, you will have one of the following concession cards:

  • Pensioner Concession Card;
  • Commonwealth Senior Health Card;
  • Health Care Card; or
  • DVA White, Gold or Orange Card.

Some State/Territory governments issue Seniors Cards.  These are not considered concession cards for the purpose of the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme or the NEBDS.

Centrelink is responsible for the issue and administration of the Pensioner Concession Card, Commonwealth Seniors Health Card and Health Care Cards.

Under the 2012 Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme co-payment arrangements, the contribution is $35.40 per order or $5.80 for Concession Card holders (a photocopy of a current concession card must be supplied with the Application Form). The contribution required will change on 1 January each year, in line with changes to the single Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme co-payment amount.
