Did you know the battle to retain private health insurance rebates for Natural Medicine is not over yet?
Your Health Your Choice, Australia’s largest consumer campaign to protect people’s choice in complementary healthcare, has written a formal request to Australia’s Health Minister, Greg Hunt, to exercise his power to amend the Private Health Insurance (Health Insurance Business) Rules 2018, to allow private health insurers to offer rebates for Natural Therapies.
The letter warns against the drastic cuts and proposed changes, outlining the risks involved in moving forward with the new private health insurance rules, which would restrict healthcare choices by making them less affordable, making it difficult to conduct research into Natural Therapies and impacting the viability of multiple Australian small businesses.
If you would like a copy of this letter to send to the Minister for Health, please email me directly on email@example.com Since the Your Health Your Choice campaign put out the call mid-last week, well over 6,000 people have responded with individualised emails, and this is growing daily.
