Medicare has moved.
The office – once located on the 3rd floor of the glasshouse in the Sydney CBD is now in a different place.
It is now part of the new and improved myGov Sydney: at Shop 1, 32 Martin Place
Sydney, opposite the MLC Centre.
myGov Sydney is Open Monday to Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm
At the shop front you can get assistance with creating your myGov account
and linking to other myGov member services.
You can then access Medicare, Centrelink, Child Support and other services.
The myGov Sydney office is a mere 350m from St James Pharmacy
Here you can obtain medicines prescribed on the Pharmaceutical Benefits
Scheme or PBS at prices far below cost.
Some medicines that fall below the $36.70 patient co pay threshold follow:
Amoxycillin 500mg 20 $6.40
This is cheaper than “Chemist’s Warehouse” who claim to beat everyone’s prices.
Panadeine Forte 20 $9
Rosuvastatin 20mg 30 $29
This is cheaper than Cincotta’s advertised price of $36
Coversyl 5mg 30 $9
Again cheaper than “Chemist’s Warehouse”
