Medicare Under Attack

medicare

Did you know our Medicare system is under attack by the Liberal-Nationals?

The Turnbull Government have:

  • Revealed plans to privatise the Medicare payment system.
  • Cut $650 million from Medicare, meaning you and I will pay more for vital tests and scans.
  • Locked in a GP Tax by stealth which will cut bulk-billing and see patients paying higher fees to visit their local doctor.

On the other hand Labor have promised to restore indexation of the Medicare Benefits Schedule, oppose Mr Turnbull’s cuts and fight the Liberal-Nationals plan to privatise Medicare.

On July 2 we need to send a clear message that our healthcare should depend on our Medicare card, not our credit card.
