The Coalition Government recently announced that Australians fighting cancer will soon benefit from five new cancer drugs that will be made available on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS).
These drugs represent a $100 million dollar investment by the Coalition Government in the fight against cancer.
From December 1, eligible patients with certain forms of leukaemia, advanced tumours of the intestine and pancreas, melanoma, bowel cancer and ovarian cancer will save up to $100,000 a year.
The Coalition has listened to independent medical experts and their recommendations.
We have listed every drug recommended on the PBS.
The support offered by Medicare and the PBS to Australians most in need is only possible through a strong and growing economy.
Our Government’s strong economic management means we are providing Australian patients with access to life-saving and life-changing medicines quicker than ever before.
