For those overseas, people on pensions here pay only $6.30 per prescription, up to a maximum of 60 per year, after which they're free. That 60 is spread across a whole family too; meaning 60 prescriptions total for the whole family. As David and I are a couple (albeit still waiting for marriage) that 60 includes both of us.
So for the rest of the calendar year all our prescriptions are free. Hooray! Thank you Medicare.
