Commonwealth Seniors Health Card holders may receive benefits such as cheaper medicine, refunded medical costs and discounts on rates, electricity, gas, dental, eye care and public transport.
In order to access a card you need to have reached age pension age and pass an income test which has recently been substantially increased. The income limit is now $90,000 a year for singles and $144,000 a year for couples. This is expected to result in an additional 50,000 Australians becoming eligible for the card.
The process to apply for a card is done via mygov – so patience is required! If you think you may now be eligible, make a cup of tea and then click on this link
