Gold Card

WW2 veterans aged 70 and over with qualifying service are entitled to a Gold Card – ‘Repatriation Health Card For All Conditions.’ All other Australian Defence Force veterans with qualifying service over the age of 70 are eligible for the Gold Card from 1 July 2002. The Gold Card gives the holder access to the full range of Repatriation health care benefits. The holder is eligible for treatment for all health conditions irrespective of whether they are war-caused or not. The Gold Card may also be issued to War Widows/Widowers and eligible dependants of a deceased veteran, whose death has been accepted as war-caused.
