Letter to the Health Minister
AHPA and its member associations are extremely concerned about the low level of rebates for allied health Medicare items and the impact this has on access to services. As part of our advocacy efforts, AHPA wrote to Federal Health Minister, Greg Hunt ahead of the 2017/18 Federal Budget calling for a reintroduction of indexation for all allied health Medicare items.
