Did you know the government’s FREE Rapid Antigen Test Program for concession and DVA card holders was extended?
We are entering the fourth month today (May 1st – May 31st). If eligible you will be able to collect your next batch of 5 RATs from today.
The CRTCA Program is a temporary program to provide eligible concession card holders access to free rapid antigen testing products (RATs). The program will end in the next couple of months so we encourage you to access your supply.
Many of us have now experienced first-hand the effects of Covid either from testing positive or from isolating as close contact. As such, you will be aware how quickly you may utilise your supply of tests, in many cases needing to test daily.
We are expecting WA’s Covid caseload to remain high now as the mask mandate has been lifted, so please make sure you are prepared and have enough RAT’s at home.
For customers to access up to 20 free Rapid Antigen Tests (increased from 10) over the six-month period (maximum of five tests per month) you must hold one of the following cards:
- Commonwealth Seniors Health Card
- Health Care Card
- Low Income Health Care Card
- Pensioner Concession Card
- Department of Veterans’ Affairs Gold, White or Orange cards.
You will need to show either of the following:
- your digital card in the Express Plus Centrelink mobile app, or
- your physical card.

Please ask our friendly staff next time you visit the pharmacy, and we will be happy to process the claim for you (This means if you have already collected your first three batches of five free tests, you can now come in to collect your fourth supply from today).
To protect staff and other customers from COVID-19 please only attend the pharmacy if you’re feeling well and do not have any symptoms.
