Here is an interesting artice relating to medicare rebates

Here is a nice easy read relating to the effects of cutting medicare funded rebates, until last year women could claim 80 per cent of out-of-pocket obstetrics fees after reaching the safety-net threshold. This will change things for both the woman and the obstetrician... and hopefully we will see more women seeking midwifery led care.......Anger over cut to obstetrics
Rebates for private obstetrics fees slashed
Public hospitals swamped by patient demand
Low-risk out-of-area patients turned away
