Stop Scott Morrison taking $7.5 Million Health Dollars out of the Hunter Region

The Hunter is a region with a much higher proportion of disadvantaged community members than the leafy green suburbs of North Sydney. This was recognised by giving the Hunter region access to a higher rebate for bulk-billed patients.  But on the 1st of January 2020, Scott Morrison is cutting back payments for bulk-billing in our region to match suburbs like Mosman.

By doing this, Scott Morrison is removing a staggering $7.5 Million Health Dollars from our region. That's $7.5 Million dollars directly used by GPs to bulk-bill the most disadvantaged and vulnerable in our community - including our children.

Coming on top of payments that have already been severely reduced (e.g. the "Medicare rebate freeze") this will force GPs to start charging a gap payment for our most vulnerable people.

C'mon, ScoMo - why are you picking on us?

Fair Go, ScoMo - don't take $7.5 Million away from the most vulnerable in our community!!!
