the removal of the private health insurance rebate for certain natural therapies from 1 April 201919th October 2017
After the recent announcement from the Government regarding the removal of the private health insurance rebate for certain natural therapies from 1 April 2019, we need your help!
Figures demonstrate that interest in natural medicine is growing both here in Australia and around the world, with 2 out of 3 Australians having used complementary and natural medicines. The proposal disregards the voice of these consumers in how they choose to manage their health and wellbeing.
Due to its focus on preventive medicine, another benefit of natural medicine is that in the long-term individuals may save money on hospital and medical costs.
What can you do?
We need to join together with us and tell your local MPs: I support natural medicine and I vote! We need to make sure our local MPs know that if they support the removal of funding for natural medicine via the private health funds, they will not get your vote in the next election!

Let’s stand together and take control of our health care system!
With gratitude and thanks,
