Healthier Medicare

The Australian Government is inviting health consumers to contribute to the reform of the health system and delivering a Healthier Medicare. One of the priority areas is better supporting people with chronic and complex health conditions, including mental health conditions, through primary health care. There was a survey that has been announced alongside the release of a Discussion Paper by the Primary Health Care Advisory Group, to examine options for health reform and provide a report to the Australian Government in late 2015.
