Thanks for sharing this article! What's the difference between a general patient and a concessional patient?
General patient is any person who holds a Medicare card (Australian citizens, permanent residents) or a reciprocal Medicare card (visitors to Australia who come from UK, USA, NZ, Belgium, Finland, Greece and few other euro nations).
A concession patient is a person who holds a Medicare card and is a 'low income earner' (combined household income of approximately 45K a year) who is eligible for a Centrelink healthcare card. Also aged pensioners (65-70 years of age), war veterans (or their spouses) and those with a disability pension (and their careers) are classified as concessions patients and receive a further subsidy on their medication.
Thank you for the information! This is a great movement. It would surely reduce the rate of HCV in Australia. Hopefully other countries adopt this movement to exterminate HCV from the earth.
