Support services and resources for your veteran patients
DVA encourages you to refer your veteran patients and their families to the following COVID-19 information and resources.
Vulnerable people, including eligible veterans, can order their Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) and Repatriation Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (RPBS) prescriptions remotely, and have their medicines home-delivered, once a month, to reduce their potential exposure to COVID-19.
Older and at-risk veterans may access shopping support provided by Veterans’ Home Care (VHC). Veterans can call the VHC Assessment Agency directly on 1300 550 450. A doctor’s referral is not required to access these services.
