MEDICARE SAFETY NET 

The Medicare Safety Net provides patients with additional financial assistance for out-of-pocket costs for out-of-hospital Medicare funded services. The difference between the doctor’s fee and the Medicare rebate is the patient’s out-of-pocket cost.

The threshold is indexed annually from 1 January and operates on a calendar year, 1 January to 31 December.

For more information on the Medicare Safety Net & Extended Medicare Safety Net, please visit Services Australia’s website.
