Feeling Sick: Medicare Co-Payments and our Health
TasCOSS and The Medicare Action Group would like to invite you to a free Lunchtime Policy Forum, for a public discussion about the impacts of co-payments for Medicare services.
Prime Minister Tony Abbott recently told local radio listeners in Hobart that there is nothing wrong with contributing a modest co-payment when we visit health services. But just how will a “modest” co-payment affect Tasmanians, our already strained health system, and our community in general?
Come and hear an expert panel, including health policy analysts Jennifer Doggett and Martyn Goddard, present their ideas. Then join us for what promises to be a robust audience and panel discussion.
Tuesday 10 June 2014, 12 noon – 2 pm.
Bring along your lunch; tea and coffee will be provided.
