The Stoma Appliance Scheme

The Stoma Appliance Scheme is subsidised by the Australian Government (Medicare) and supplies stoma related products free-of-charge to people living with a stoma. The types of products available are provided to ostomates under the guidance of their STN.

To access the Stoma Appliance Scheme, a person must be a current Medicare Card holder and a paid member of an ostomy association. Through this scheme, ostomates are supplied with the approved appliances and pharmaceutical items necessary for their stoma care.
