About easykind

easykind is an alternative health clinic. Built for patients, by patients, our mission is to provide the most cost-effective access to alternative treatment in Australia. It’s the service that we wanted for ourselves, and we’re proud to share it with you.

Our mission is to provide every day Australians with the most cost effective access pathway to high quality alternative treatment in Australia.

However, we’re not trying to be everything to everyone.

There may be other clinics more suitable to your needs if you:

  • Want to take your script to your local chemist; or
  • Want a specific brand or product in particular (we might not stock it!)

We may be the right option if you

  • Want the most cost effective end-to-end access pathway in Australia to quality alternative care

The initial consultation is only $59, and all consultations after that are only $29. The usual easykind patient has a review consultation after month 1 and month 4. After that, they typically see their prescriber once every 6 months, paying a total of $58 per year for long-term care.

Regarding the medication itself, the TGA has extremely strict rules surrounding the advertising of alternative treatment costs. Because of this, we are not allowed to disclose product-specific information. However, flower ranges between $6 and $15 per gram, and oils range from $99 – $180. It’s best to tell the prescriber your budget, to make sure that they put you on a treatment plan suitable to you.

When James, the co-founder, was on disability support, he couldn’t afford the prices of alternative health clinics. This is why easykind was created, and why our mission is to provide the most cost-effective access to alternative treatment in Australia.

We’re not trying to be everything to everyone. We just wanted to create a clinic where the single mother of four living paycheck-to-paycheck isn’t the afterthought, for once.

The cost of alternative treatment in Australia can vary… a lot. It depends on things like the type of alternative treatment you’re consuming, dosage amount and form, frequency of use and the method of consumption.

The median weekly cost of alternative treatment for patient-only use is $40 AUD, and the middle 50% of patients spent between $7 and $100 per week. This spread illustrates just how much the weekly cost of alternative treatment can vary from patient-to-patient.

No. Patients are required to pay 100% of the costs associated with the consultation and medication.

Initial consultations must be paid for at least 24 hours before the consultation.

How it all works

Click “start here” on the website to confirm eligibility and book an initial phone consultation with one of our friendly prescribers.

We’ll normally give you a call before the consultation to introduce ourselves and make sure that you’re comfortable with the process, but you’re always welcome to call us directly first.

The TGA requires that patients who are prescribed THC for the first time have a 1 month review consultation.

Beyond that, the usual patient experience is to receive a 1 month script, then a 3 month script, and then 6 monthly repeats. It’s up to the patient and the prescriber to decide how frequently or infrequently the return consultations should occur.

Our initial consultations are 20-30 minute phone calls.

There’s no need to leave your home at any stage of the process, from booking to delivery!

The only things that we need from you before the consultation are your $59 payment to confirm the timeslot, and your patient intake form. Links to complete both the payment and form will be emailed through upon booking your initial time slot.

No need!

Initial consultations must be paid for at least 24 hours before the consultation.

Eligibility

To be eligible for alternative treatment, you must:

  • Have a chronic condition (defined as 3 of more months)
  • Have tried other treatments which either didn’t fully treat your symptoms, or created unwanted side effects
  • Not have a history of psychosis or be pregnant or breastfeeding

You must be 18 years or older to book a consultation. We recommend speaking with your usual GP if you are under 18 and wish to discuss alternative treatment with a clinician.

Shipping & Dispensing

The delivery cost is $15 for express delivery through StarTrack.

Unfortunately not. Every decision that we’ve made at easykind has been to keep costs down for patients. Because of this, we only stock our products at the one partner pharmacy – distributors usually charge 20-30% of the RRP just to send the product to your local chemist!

Yep! The delivery cost is $15 for express delivery through StarTrack, Australia wide.

The medication usually arrives in 1-4 business days. You’ll receive a tracking number through StarTrack, so you’ll know when to expect the delivery.

Concession Programs

Our mission is to provide the most cost effective access to high quality alternative treatment to all Australians.

Because of this, our pricing is the most cost effective access for everybody – not just concession card holders.
