The Abbott Government is introducing a $6 GP fee in the next budget. Ten reasons why this is a bad idea:

  1. $6 is a lot for the disadvantaged. The dole is about $35 a day.
  2. It discourages the disadvantaged - pensioners, Aboriginal people, disabled people, poor people - who, ironically, have the most health concerns.
  3. It is hard enough getting people to see a doctor to check that spot, or discuss weird weight loss, or feel that testicle. We should not add disincentives.
  4. The money saved is minimal.
  5. In fact, it may ultimately cost us more. If people are less inclined to see their GP early, that spot/weight loss/testicle bump may turn into a big/costly/devastating problem. A stitch in time saves nine.
  6. We simply don’t have a problem of people going to the GP needlessly.
  7. The AMA is against it.
  8. We have no assurance that this fee will stay at $6 - the fees may keep increasing over time if we don’t nip it in the bud.
  9. More incentive for people to go to (already overcrowded) emergency departments.
  10. Let’s call a dog a dog: The Liberal Government do not like welfare for ideological reasons. They don’t like the idea of people getting a handout. I suspect this is less about saving money and more about them cutting something they don’t believe in, even if it is proving to be working.
