You might be aware that the Labor Party has announced it will cease the rebate for Natural Therapies if elected.
As a user of Natural Therapies, we wanted to make sure you understood what this means before you cast your vote.
If Labor is elected, taxpayer-funded private health insurance rebates will no longer be available for natural therapies from July 1, 2017.
While we are pleased they have made their position clear, we are disappointed at the lack of understanding and support Labor has shown for the health system and the vital role Natural Therapies play. Rather than fixing the problem, removing health fund rebates for these services will significantly add to the issues and pressures the health system and budget already faces.
This measure will save the government $180 million over four years, but at what cost?
The Liberal Party has recently announced it will maintain the current private health insurance rebate for patients but will make changes including simplifying policies into 3 categories such as Gold, Silver and Bronze, simplify billing and other measures.
You have your own decision to make on July 2, based on what’s best for you and your family.
But if you feel this budget measure is unfair, we encourage you to voice your concerns to your local Labor candidate.
