Is the Price of PrEP on the PBS a hard pill to swallow?
If you’ve been on a study with free or cheap PrEP or importing – getting your PrEP might be pricier. Never fear!
According to the PBS website, ‘pharmacists may choose to discount the PBS patient co-payment by up to $1.00. This is not mandatory and it is the pharmacist’s choice whether or not to provide a discount.‘ With that in mind, we’ve located a few that will honour that discount. We always advise giving pharmacies a call ahead of time to ensure the pharmacist can and will honour the discount.
You can also import PrEP from overseas for a lower price than the PBS.
