For 32 years Medicare has ensure that all Australians have access to quality healthcare regardless of income or background.
But now the Liberals want to make people pay for life-saving medical tests by cutting $650 million from Medicare rebates. Patients will be forced to pay for essential pathology and diagnostic imaging tests that are now free.
These proposed changes could mean additional up-front costs for pap smears, x-rays, MRI scans and blood tests.
These tests save lives and these cuts will hit the sickest the hardest.
Tell the Turnbull Government to stop its co-payments for pathology and diagnostic imaging testing. Join us on Feb 20 – 12pm at the State Library to stand up and fight back against healthcare austerity.
