Biologic injections for PSA ?

Recommended Posts

Hello

In the midst of researching for a move down under. One huge quandary is that my oh has psioratic arthritis and is on a fortnightly biologic injection, which we understand is super costly to the NHS.

Asking advice really on how you go about a) passing a medical with this condition

B) is it possible to get such drugs in Australia without selling a kidney?!!!

Many thanks in advance

Your best bet is to consult a migration agent who specialises in people with medical conditions. George Lombard is one

I believe biological are very expensive here too and approval is required to receive them subsidised under the PBS.

There is more information here:
