Membership cost

To receive stoma products under the Stoma Appliance Scheme, it is a requirement of Medicare that ostomates are financial (paid) members of a stoma association, such as Ostomy SA. Fees are set by Medicare in consultation with the Australian Council of Stoma Associations (ACSA).

Full Membership: $60 per annum
Concession Membership: $50 per annum

Reduced payments are arranged for new members registering mid-financial year. Annual fees are payable by 1 July each year for the following financial year. A grace period of two months is permitted, however a late fee of $5 per month will be applicable for late payments.

If payment is not made by 1 October, Ostomy SA will not be in a position to supply products under the Stoma Appliance Scheme, and the member will be advised that their membership will be terminated.

If you are having difficulty meeting this payment, please make contact with Ostomy SA immediately to arrange a periodic payment plan. For more information, please contact our office.
