PBS Safety Net thresholds are the amount your customers need to spend before they can get their medicines at a cheaper price.

A lower threshold means customers can access PBS medicines at a reduced price sooner.

From 1 January, the 2020 PBS Safety Net thresholds are:

  • $316.80 for concession card holders
  • $1,486.80 for general customers.

This change can save them up to around $80 per year in out‑of‑pocket costs.
