The Low Income Health Care Card can help you cover some health care costs when you don’t earn much. This is even if your parents or partner earn too much for you to get a student payment.
For example, you could get a Low Income Health Care Card if you’re a single student and you:
- meet residence rules
- earn $656 a week or less or $5,248 or less in an 8-week period.
With your card you could get cheaper medicine and bulk billed doctors’ visits. Depending on where you live, you may get other benefits and discounts on bills.
