From July 1, the Morrison-Joyce Government has made cuts and changes to over 900 surgical items covered under the Medicare Benefits Schedule.
The changes will radically alter the cost of hundreds of orthopaedic, cardiac and general surgery items that are usually covered by Medicare.
What’s worse is that this decision has been made during a global pandemic and without proper consultation with healthcare professionals and patients.
It means that local patients will often have to choose between cancelling lifechanging surgeries or being hit with huge bills.
Add your voice to our demand that Scott Morrison reverse these changes immediately.
Now is not the time to make it harder and more expensive for people to get the healthcare they need.
