You’ll need a record of the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) medicine you buy to know when you reach the threshold. When you go over the PBS Safety Net threshold amount for the calendar year, you can apply to get cheaper medicine.
How to keep a record
You can either:
- keep your own list on a Prescription Record Form - you can get this form from your pharmacist
- ask your pharmacist to keep a computer record for you - this works if you get all your PBS medicines from the same place.
