Make quality health care affordable again

Labor believes access to health care should depend on your Medicare card, not your credit card. That’s why we will:

  • End the Medicare Freeze – addressing rising out-of-pocket costs and keeping healthcare affordable

  • Cap private health insurance premiums – with increases capped at no more than 2 per cent for the next two years

  • Invest in public hospitals – with more doctors, nurses, health staff and resources so you can get the care you need, when you need it, in our public hospitals

Attacks on Medicare will hurt families already struggling with the cost of living and wreck our universal health care system.

Together we can protect Medicare. Join the 129,758 who have signed the petition to tell the Liberals: hands off our Medicare!
