DVA Concession Cards

The Department of Veteran’s Affairs issues Concession Cards to those receiving a pension automatically.  This entitles the holder to a range of discounts on expenditures such as telephone, electricity, council rates and car registration.

In addition, the card entitles the recipient to reduced cost of prescription medicines listed under the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS).

The DVA Gold Card entitles the holder to health care for all types of ailments and conditions, whether war caused or not.  There is a pharmaceutical benefits scheme and range of dental care.
