Closing the Gap - PBS Co-Payment Measure
What it doesThe Closing the Gap (CTG) PBS Co-payment Measure reduces or removes the patient co-payment for PBS medicines for eligible Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients living with, or at risk of chronic disease.
Patients access the more affordable PBS medicines by attending a general practice participating in the Practice Incentive Programme (PIP) under the Indigenous Health Incentive (IHI) or a registered non-remote (urban or rural) Indigenous Health Service. Hospitals are excluded from participating in the PBS Co-payment Measure.
