This service is only for smokers who have been unable to quit via other methods.
It is not a ‘first line’ quit approach, as nicotine vaping does not have the long-term safety evidence compared to existing methods (such as nicotine patches).
— If you are new to vaping, it is recommended you choose a device before booking with me.
— Your script provides enough for approximately 3 months supply, based on your individual needs.
— With the script, you order your product from your usual preferred overseas supplier (as long as they fulfill Australian TGA safety regulations).
Alternatively, you may be able to source it via an Australian online or local pharmacy.
Book and pay for your online consultation:
— Consults are an initial $40 gap for the first script. You pay $86, then claim back $46 via the Medicare online app (or in person).
— Repeat scripts are bulk-billed. You pay $46, then claim it back in full via the Medicare online app (or in person).
— Once payment is approved, you will receive a confirming email – this gives access to the medical and smoking questionnaire (make sure to check spam and junk too).
— The original scripts are stored securely at a medical practice. You receive a digital copy of the script.
Then complete the medical questionnaire:
— Once you access the questionnaire, you’ll need to upload a screenshot of your Medicare card (if you have one), and some photo ID (eg driver’s license, student card). If you are doing a repeat script, you’ll need to upload an image of the previous script PDF.
— Complete the online medical and smoking questionnaire and press ‘submit’.
— All responses are confidential.
— I may need to contact you to clarify responses.
— Allow up to 3 BUSINESS days, and as appropriate your script will be emailed direct to you as a PDF.
