Australian Medicare support for CPAP ?

Quote:A machine purchased from an American supplier will need an adapter plug to use on OZ outlets,
Actually all you need is a new Figure-8 power cord which is less hassle than using an adapter. Get it from OfficeWorks, Hardly Normal or almost any electrical dealer.

There is no GST on imported CPAP devices - they are exempt. You're correct that Customs impose some sort of handling fee which seems to be around $50, depending on who you talk to.
