Medical Aids Subsidy Scheme (MASS)

The Medical Aids Subsidy Scheme (MASS) provides funding for medical aids and equipment to eligible Queensland residents who have a permanent and stabilised condition or a disability. The scheme helps people to live at home and avoid early or inappropriate residential care or hospitalisation.
Aids and equipment are subsidy funded on a permanent loan basis, through private ownership or the supply of consumables. If you pay for more than 50% of the cost for an item, you can choose to take ownership, rather than having a permanent loan. However, this means that you are responsible for all repairs to that item.
In general, clients may be eligible for assistance under MASS if they:-

  • Are a permanent resident of Queensland
  • Have a permanent/stable condition or disability
  • Hold a pensioner concession card, health care card or Queensland Government Senior Card
  • Meet specific clinical eligibility criteria relevant to the aid.

Relevant application guidelines and forms for each scheme or aid/equipment provide detailed information regarding eligibility requirements.

Information on the Medical Aids Subsidy Scheme (MASS) is available on the Queensland Health Website at http://www.health.qld.gov.au/mass/
