Free PBS Medication Delivery

Home > COVID-19 Support > Assistance for Community Members > Free PBS Medication Delivery

There is a free home delivery service for medicine for people who are sick, vulnerable or self-isolating.

People who are eligible include:

  • People who are sick,
  • People who are self-isolating,
  • Anybody over 70,
  • First Nations people over the age of 50,
  • People with chronic health conditions or whose immune systems are compromised, and
  • Women who are pregnant or have a new baby.

How it works:

  • Pharmacies can now use Australia Post to mail essential medications to your door,
  • The service is for PBS medications; however, you can ask the pharmacy to add other over-the-counter medications to the delivery,
  • You can have a delivery once per month, and
  • To order, call your local pharmacy (different pharmacies will have different ordering systems).
