Assisted transport schemes (country travel)
People in regional areas who are travelling to the city for dialysis may be eligible for a government scheme that provides financial assistance for travel and accommodation expenses when having dialysis away from home, during training or when attending appointments.
In some states you may need to claim in advance. In most states support is also available for family members.
You can find out details about the scheme in your state or territory here:
