SCOTT MORRISON’S ATTACK ON MEDICARE

June 07, 2021

Scott Morrison has launched the biggest attack on Medicare in decades. 
 
Under the cover of an understandable national focus on the Victorian COVID-19 outbreak, Scott Morrison has snuck out almost 1,000 changes to the Medicare Benefits Schedule. 
 
Australians that are already suffering are being punished even further because of Scott Morrison’s ruthless Medicare cuts.
 
Patients have been left in limbo for months waiting to know if their procedure will still be covered or what changes will be made.
 
Patients now face the prospect of life-changing surgeries being cancelled at the last minute, or being landed with huge bills they didn’t expect. 
 
The AMA warned the Morrison Government about the rushed nature of these changes and the fact they cannot be implemented without significant disruption to the provision of healthcare to countless Australians.
 
Cutting Medicare is in the Liberals’ DNA. You can never trust the Liberals on Medicare.
 
Labor built Medicare and we will always protect it.
