One fine body…
The National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation has rejected the Federal Government's proposed new GP co-payment model.
The Government this week abandoned plans announced in the May budget to implement a seven dollar fee after failing to gain sufficient political support.
Instead, they'll aim to introduce an optional five dollar co-payment, with doctors to decide whether or not to charge patients.
NACCHO Chief Executive Lisa Briggs is urging the Government to drop the proposal, saying a co-payment won't help to close the gap.
