    Default Centrelink

    well i have just spent 40 mins online looking thru different payments and trying to work out what i may get if i left hubby.

    Im a full time student.I dont work, 1 child at home ( not his) and she is 17 and in year 12. I would be paying board and lodging to H as im hoping centrelink would let me live at home separated due to DD being in year 12 and upcoming exams and me studying fulltime...

    so i think i worked out i could apply for Austudy..

    My question to you lovely ladies is... Do you get a health care card for reduced medical appt costs and /or cheaper medications? I currently pay to see GP and i also pay $75 a month for medications..

    Thanks

    Healthcare card does provide discounts for medications, but I'm not sure if it covers all medication or what the percentages would be.

    As for the GP...can you find one that bulk bills?

    If you get austudy than you get a health care card.
    Than any meds on the pbs will be $6.10. So you will need to ask your Dr or chemist if your meds are under the scheme.
