Much to my surprise, I just received a healthcare card (due to low income after having bub)...

Anyway, I was wondering where it can be used?

I know that I can use it to get cheaper scripts for Master D and I and also get a discount with Aurora (I think)....is there anywhere else I can use it??

Can use it at the doctors to get lower gaps if your doc doesn't bulk bill

Im pretty sure it all varys state to state, but not sure you find out what your state includes. Public transport should give you discounts??

It definitely gives you concession tickets at cinemas, and in Victoria at least, on the public transport.

I have just been looking into it as we will qualify when I stop work for this baby.

The letter accompanying the HCC should detail your concessions. It depends what state you are in as to what is available.

from the centerlink site
Benefits

A Health Care Card entitles you to cheaper medicines under the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) and various concessions from the Australian Government—these could include:

* bulk billing for doctor’s appointments (this is your doctor’s decision)
* more refunds for medical expenses through the Medicare Safety Net
* assistance with hearing services through the Office of Hearing Services
* discounted mail redirection through Australia Post.

Note: You may get some of these Australian Government concessions for a dependent child.

State and Territory Governments and local councils may offer concessions, such as:

* energy and electricity bills
* health care costs including ambulance, dental and eye care
* public transport costs
* water rates.
in Vic and NSW you get a discount on ur car rego
