Highly unlikely. It took Australia 12 years longer than the UK and 5 years longer than the US to assist excessive underarm sufferers to be partially covered for excessive sweating under the BOTOX scheme. Specialist such as Dr Davin Lim has lobbied for the inclusion of iontophoresis for sweaty hands to be covered, however Medicare simply does not have the funds to cover sweat treatments.
Sweat Free Specialists will continue to request a rebate for patients who qualify under strict specialist guidelines, however the chances of success are slim. Unfortunately health insurance companies in Australia, unlike other parts of the World do not take excessive sweating seriously and continue to ignore this debilitating medical condition.
What other more cost effective treatments are there for sweating if miraDry is out of reach? If miradry treatment is not for you, consider the Botox treatment for excessive underarm sweating. Treatments are now partially covered under Medicare and PBS. Botox last 2-8 months long, and can be repeated up to 3 times per year under the Botox Axillary Hyperhidrosis scheme.
