In relation to your daughter’s important condition the following may assist you.

If you have a chronic medical condition, you can claim benefits and payments for certain health care services. Medicare benefits and the Medicare Safety Net can help you cover the cost of health care services, such as visiting your doctor. The Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) and the PBS Safety Net reduces the cost of a wide range of prescription medicines.

f you've had a chronic medical condition for at least 6 months or it's terminal, you and your GP can agree to a Chronic Disease Management Plan.

Your GP will write a plan that:

  • identifies your health care needs
  • sets out the services your GP provides, and
  • lists what you need to do

If you have complex care needs in addition to a chronic or terminal disease, your GP may also develop Team Care Arrangements (TCA). This identifies the treatment you get from your GP and at least 2 other health professionals.

If you’re eligible and your GP prepares the plan, you may also get Medicare benefits for specific allied health services.

Concession and health care cards can give you concessions that make it less expensive when you use certain health care services, or buy prescription medicines. There are different types of concession and health care cards.

You have a legal right to protect your interests in this important situation.

If you need any further information let me know and I will be pleased to assist.

You can come back to this post any time to ask questions and there will be no further charges to you.

Don’t forget to rate me 5 stars as this supports me helping the community, and your important questions.

Have I answered your question today ?
