The tripling of bulk-billing incentives on 1 November has already improved bulk-billing rates at some GP practices, claims GP corporate ForHealth.  

The company issued a joint statement with the Minister for Health and Aged Care to say that 20 of its practices that previously had the lowest bulk-billing rates were now bulk-billing more.
