Lymphoedema compression garments
Subsidies for lymphoedema compression garments provide people diagnosed with lymphoedema with financial assistance towards the costs of their garments. The schemes are run by state and territory governments, and cover some, or all, of the cost of compression garments.
A complete list of compression garment schemes in each state and territory* is available from the Australasian Lymphology Association.
*There is no compression garment subsidy program offered by the South Australian Government. Some hospitals in South Australia do provide compression garments free of charge. There is also an organisation in South Australia called the Louisa DaCosta Trust that may be able to provide financial assistance towards the cost of lymphoedema compression garments for people in South Australia.
