Peak health body sees no benefit in new GP co-payment proposal
Posted on December 11, 2014

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.
