Low Income Health Care Card
You may be eligible for a Low Income Health Care Card if you are on a low income and meet the Low Income Health Care Card income test. If you are a student or Australian Apprentice and receive Youth Allowance, ABSTUDY or Austudy, you will not automatically receive a Health Care Card but may still qualify for a Low Income Health Care Card.
The card gives low income earners access to cheaper prescription medicines, and various concessions from government and private organisations.
