What kind of medication can I claim for via Extras cover?

Under the Pharmaceutical benefit, you may be able to claim for medication that’s prescribed by a doctor but isn’t already subsidised by the government’s Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS). You can ask your pharmacist if your medicine is or isn’t PBS-subsidised.

The medication needs to be approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) though. That rules out medication that’s in a clinical trial, for instance.  

If you’re still unsure if you can claim for medication you’ve been prescribed, contact us so we can check it out for you.
