AMA submission to the Inquiry into legislation to increase patient co-payments for PBS medicines

28 Aug 2014

The AMA's submission to the Senate Community Affairs Legislation Committee opposes the Government's legislation to increase patient co-payments and safety net thresholds for PBS and RPBS medicines. The National Health Amendment (Pharmaceutical Benefits) Bill 2014 will negatively impact those most vulnerable in our community - those on low incomes and with chronic medical conditions needing to take multiple medications.
