Ian McAuley & Peter Frank | Medicare Select: Entrenching Inequality in Healthcare


The Australian has examined two separate CPD papers which oppose the government’s ‘Medicare Select’ program. Medicare Select which champions the idea of competing insurance plans has the risk of allowing governments to cut Medicare to a “bare bones program for the poor”.

CPD proposes that Medicare Select should be ditched in favour of more effective programs like a network of regional health organizations, which would direct funds into areas of increasing need.
