pbsEZ aims to save money by giving an easy way to search the government funded PBS list for prescribed medications.
We're fortunate, in Australia, to have a lot of medication government subsidised.
Whilst the government already has a very good site for the PBS list, it's designed more for the use of health professionals than those getting prescriptions filled.
We decided to provide a more simplified version to assist people with differing abilities.
Important to remember this should be used only as for a discussion point with a qualified medical professional.
pbsEZ has been designed for ease of use

We recommend you discuss more with a health professional to see if there is an equivalent type of medication which would suit you which is on the list & for your eligibility
After a person we knew got a $2,000 pharmacy bill we learnt why. The Pharmacist said that the doctor had presribed medication which was not on the PBS list, despite their being alternatives which were. We were asked to create a tool to help people check themselves
