Closing The Gap

Eligible Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders living with chronic disease have access to low cost or free PBS medicines. They can access these through the Closing the Gap (CTG) scheme. Your Capital Chemist pharmacy is part of this scheme.

Certain criteria apply. If you believe you may qualify for cheaper medicines through the CTG scheme start with your doctor and/or your indigenous health service. Most GPs can register patients for the scheme. Once a patient is registered the prescriber writes a special code on the prescription that makes PBS medicines cheaper.

Not all doctors can prescribe under the CTG scheme, and not all medicines are subsidised.
