The AMA welcomes the Government’s decision to not proceed with it's $20 Medicare rebate cut for GP consultations lasting less than 10 minutes that were due to commence on 19 January. This is a great win for common sense.

While the AMA is very pleased with this decision, which is a big win for GPs and patients, our concerns with other planned cuts to funding for MBS services remain. The Government has not yet backed away from its proposal for a $5 rebate cut for most GP services from July 1 or its planned freeze on MBS indexation until 2018.

With this in mind, the AMA is holding GP forums in Tasmania, Victoria, South Australia, New South Wales, the ACT, Queensland and Western Australia. These forums remain a critical part of our campaign to support General Practice and an important opportunity for you to join with other GPs to inform our feedback to the Government’s consultation process.

We welcome AMA members and non-members alike to continue to advocate for strong health policy for general practice. Please join your colleagues at the AMA Forums for General Practice.

Please let us know if you intend to participate in the GP Forum by clicking on the relevant state.
