Health Insurance Costs and Modern Medicine

It seems that the more insurance one has the higher go the fees. Doctors now earn significantly more than they did proportionally few years ago. While they know that their patients can retrieve most of the cost for their service they rarely get an argument from them. In Australia we have the Medicare system that covers everything for those without private health.

The past chief Minister, Tony Abbot, put this additional burden on people that they must have health insurance. Only the pensioners above 75 years are now covered by bulk billing. That is they are not charged and the government pays for them. Prior to the Abbot changes everyone had this kind of assistance but the cost was unsustainable.

Because of that rise in fees the government is now looking for ways to cut it back already further. The increase in population from overseas migrants is putting an additional burden on the system. Some of these people will go to two or three doctors in the same day thinking they will get better quicker. Some are also getting additional drugs and selling them overseas.

Modern medicine is expensive and now the vets are also on a par with the medical profession as far as fees go. The argue that they do much the same amount of study is a logical claim but when one has no insurance against their bills it is rather tough for many to provide it. Pet ownership is experiencing as a consequence.

We can’t go backwards to old systems because it becomes too complicated. Once people earn more it is hard to take it away again. This is in addition another dilemma the government is dealing with as there appears to be no way they can force a decline in the cost of the medical bills covered by their program. The cost of private insurance is also rising beyond what most and now provide.
