Remote Area Aboriginal Health Services (RAAHS) Program

What it does

The Remote Area Aboriginal Health Services (RAAHS) Programme is a special supply arrangement administered under Section 100 (S100) of the National Health Act 1953. The Programme was implemented in 1999 to address the geographical, cultural and financial barriers that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples living in remote areas face in accessing essential Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) medicines.

What it achieves

Under these arrangements, clients of approved remote area Aboriginal Health Services (AHS) are able to receive PBS medicines directly from the AHS at the point of consultation, without the need for a normal prescription form, and without charge.
