THE AUSTRALIAN Government’s attempts to scrap the Medicare Chronic Disease Dental Scheme are, at the time of writing, heading for rejection for a third time.
WHILE Labor looks to axe the only public dental scheme which has provided affordable comprehensive treatment to patients, members of the Alliance for Universal Dental Health Insurance, which includes CPSA, have stepped up their campaign to have dental care included under Medicare, sighting the next Budget as the time for action.
COMMUNITY anger has put an end to a deal between supplements giant Blackmores and the Pharmacy Guild of Australia which would have seen pharmacists recommending vitamin and dietary supplements with prescription medicines.
WHEN the NSW Government increases a benefit, it would be very churlish of CPSA to say that it is not enough and that it doesn’t resolve the problem.
AUSTRALIA is one of the world’s most expensive countries when it comes to prescription medicines, a study shows.
