Q1. What services does medicare include? does it include medicines? are all services free of charge? if no, how patients are charged in hospitals and pharmaceuticals?

Q2. I should take some medicines regularly. Could you please let me know about PBS (pharmaceutical benefits scheme) and whether it is part of medicare or not?

Q1. All general consultancy are free. Medicine is not included. Any specialized treatment is not included (except pregnancy). You can have private medical insurance for those specialized ones.

Q2. I am not familiar with that. There is a health care card available for people with less income, which offers discount in medicine and other specialized treatment, but thay is available after 2 years of stay.
