After nine long years of cuts and neglect under the Liberals, the Albanese Labor Government is making Medicare stronger.
Because Labor built Medicare – and we’ll always strengthen it.
We know it’s hard to see a bulk billing doctor here in Canberra, so we’ve tripled the bulk billing incentive so more Canberrans can access one.
We know families are struggling with the cost of living, so we’ve made medicines cheaper and changed the rules so you can buy two scripts for the price of one. Our changes have meant Canberrans have already saved over $5 million – and they’ll keep saving more every day.
And we know Canberrans love their local Walk-in Centre, so we’re hiring more nurses at every centre so you can access even better care, closer to home.
Only Labor protects Medicare, and only Labor looks after the Canberrans who rely on it.
We know there’s more to do – and we’ll keep working to get it done.
