From the 1st of January 2016 we will be passing on the full $1 pension discount on prescriptions*.
Each year the government increases the amount that you pay for PBS subsidised prescriptions every year. The 2016 concession amount is $6.20, but with the Hayborough Pharmacy pension discount, you will pay $5.20
This decision to allow pharmacies to discount concession scripts is a new government initiative, and as this discount is not compulsory, some pharmacies may choose not to pass on all of the discount and some may not pass on the discount at all.
We are passing on the full discount. For those who are not pension or concession patients we will continue our strong competitive prescription prices, including on specialised compounded medicines manufactured on site.
*$1 off from January 1st, 2016 or as decided by the government. Discount only applies to PBS subsidised prescriptions for concession card holders based on government determined price. A prescription is required for these products. Customers must always read the label and seek professional medical advice if conditions persist. Concession card holders will pay the discounted concession amount $5.20, except where medicines attract a brand or therapeutic price premium.
