Repatriation Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (RPBS)

The Repatriation Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (RPBS) is a scheme established to make pharmaceuticals available to certain veterans, war widows/widowers and dependants at concessional rates.  Those persons who hold the gold Repatriation Health Card - For All Conditions or the orange Repatriation Pharaceutical Benefits Card can obtain pharmaceuticals under the scheme for all their medical conditions.  Those persons who hold the white Repatriation Health Card - For Specific Conditions can only obtain pharmaceuticals under the scheme for their accepted disabililties. Note that Commonwealth and allied veterans who only hold a White Card are not eligible for RPBS under the VEA.



The Repatriation Pharmaceutical Benefits Card is orange in colour and entitles its holder to obtain pharmaceuticals under the Repatriation Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme for all their medical conditions. It is for pharmaceuticals only and does not entitle the holder to any form of treatment benefits.
