A/Prof Brian Owler, AMA TV, 26 February 2015 - GP Co-payment

The AMA engages regularly with the Federal Government to shape health policy to ensure quality health care for all Australians.
 
In his latest video message, AMA President Associate Professor Brian Owler says the impasse over the Government's unpopular and ill-informed Medicare changes must be resolved to end uncertainty for doctors and their patients.
 
The AMA strongly opposes the $5 cut to the Medicare patient rebate, the freeze on Medicare patient rebate indexation until July 2018, and the Government's flawed GP co-payment model. Put together, these policies would have a devastating effect on the provision of quality primary health care services to the Australian people.
