Home Haemodialysis Rebate
What is it?
The Home Haemodialysis Rebate assists eligible patients accessing home haemodialysis with their water costs, up to $1,200 per annum or $3.29 per day.
The rebate is intended to provide financial support to eligible home dialysis patients with a rebate of water costs. Given that a dialysis machine is classified as life-supporting equipment, a home dialysis patient who receives the Home Haemodialysis Rebate is also eligible for the Life Support Rebate.
Who is eligible?
To be eligible for the Home Haemodialysis rebate an applicant must provide:
- Evidence that he/she is the registered owner or joint owner of the property or that the person receiving treatment resides permanently with the applicant; and
- A letter from a medical practitioner/professional confirming that:
- the applicant is receiving treatment from a home dialysis machine, or
- the applicant is the guardian/parent/carer of a person receiving treatment from a home dialysis machine.
People eligible for the Home Haemodialysis rebate are automatically eligible for the Life Support Rebate.
