I immigrated recently to Australia with my wife (We have Permanent Residence) and I have a pre-existing condition (Psoriasis) which requires expensive medicine. We just arrived last month and we are in the process of looking for jobs, but this is a lengthy process so I want to know from your experience : If I land an appointment with a doctor and he prescribes the medicine to me. Will I be able to get the medicine under Medicare? or should I pay for it myself? or is there a system for co-payment?
I appreciate your response and thank you in advance.
