NSW life support rebate
If the life support equipment you depend on is electrically operated, the electricity account holder of your place of residence may be entitled to a rebate on the electricity account.
The electricity rebate is calculated on a daily basis and will appear on your bill as a separate line item.
To be eligible for the rebate:
The following electrically operated life support equipment entitles the applicant to an electricity charge rebate:
You may be entitled to a higher rebate if you use a Positive Airways Pressure (PAP) device or oxygen concentrator 24 hours a day. However, your medical practitioner will need to specify 24-hour use of the device on the application form.
To apply, simply print the Life Support Electricity Rebate Application Form, and ensure it is completed and signed by your medical practitioner and the electricity account holder.
If you require an ongoing Life Support Rebate, please ask your Medical Practitioner to state this in a letter and we’ll record it for you.
