Reimbursement thresholds

Updated 01 January 2017

The more expenses you have for reimbursable medicine, the more reimbursement you will receive within a period of one year (the reimbursement period).

The amount of reimbursement depends on whether you are younger or older than 18 at the start of the reimbursement period.

The thresholds in the table below are effective from 1 January 2017 to 31 December 2017.

The one-year reimbursement period starts when you buy reimbursable medicine for the first time after the expiry of the preceding period.

The table below shows the relationship between the amount of reimbursement and your total annual expenditure for reimbursable medicine before deduction of reimbursement.
