Australian government targets diabetes sufferers to cut health costs
Nearly three months ago, as part of its cost-cutting health “reform” agenda, the Australian government announced a plan to shift diabetes patients onto a “managed care” system. There are concerns among doctors that diabetes sufferers are being made a test case for a new scheme to ration access to medical care. In effect, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s diabetes plan is a trial for broader steps to erode the 35-year-old Medicare public insurance system, under which patients are meant to be able to see General Practitioners (GPs) without charge, and with no limit on the number of visits. By signing up to “personalised care plans” with ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
