Medical Energy Rebates
Phone/email based service
Description: This is for eligible customers who have a medically-diagnosed inability to self-regulate body temperature when exposed to extremes (hot or cold) of environmental temperatures. It is associated with certain medical conditions such as Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis. You need to complete a Medical Energy Rebate Application Form available from your electricity supplier and have it signed by a doctor who has been treating you for at least three months. Return completed forms to your electricity supplier. The Medical Energy Rebate provides: $235 (excluding GST) a year to eligible customers who hold an electricity account with an electricity retailer of their choice; or $258.50 a year to eligible residents of on-supplied residential communities, retirement villages and strata schemes. The Rebate is indexed to inflation (CPI) and increases annually. This is separate to the Pensioner Energy Rebate received by pensioners in NSW (aged, disability).
