Restore Our Rebates

Restore our rebates

Enough talk, it’s time to act Minster Hunt. 

Help restore private health fund rebates for natural therapies. Click this link, share your thoughts and we will email the Minister for Health (Greg Hunt), your Federal MP and state Senators on your behalf.

Following a huge public outcry via YHYC before the 2019 Federal election, Minister Hunt commissioned a new ‘review update’ of 16 natural therapies to assess which therapies would be eligible to again attract rebates.

The review was scheduled for completion by 2020, but instead it has become buried in red tape and won’t be finished for years – if ever. Even then, there’s no guarantee rebates will be restored for all, if any, natural therapies. The Government is hoping no-one’s noticed.

Minister Hunt has already set a precedent by allowing Massage and Myotherapy to keep attracting rebates, despite the previous 2015 government review reporting there was ‘no conclusive evidence’. The public and private health insurers are now asking the Government to restore a level playing field across all natural therapies.

With a Federal election just around the corner and the Government lagging in the polls, NOW is the time to have your say and ask Greg Hunt MP and your Federal MPs to restore rebates for natural therapies.

It’s what the community and private insurers want. Tell the Government to stop interfering!

More than ever, it is imperative that our community stands together to support small businesses, educators, researchers and consumers. It’s time to protect Australians’ health choices and to help reduce the burden on the public health system.

Politicians consider every personalised message to be worth 100 votes, so your feedback really counts! Ask your family and friends to do the same to restore government support for your health choices.

ANY feedback, even just a sentence, will send a strong message and can make a very real difference.

We’ve made it easy to have your say – it only takes a few minutes.

This campaign is now closed.
