Fix Medicare in four easy steps

1) Get rid of the Chronic Disease Management Plan (formerly known as the Enhanced Primary Care Program, or EPC).

2) Tighten the criteria around the Mental Health Care Plan. Otherwise, it’s a case of ‘everyone whose boyfriend has been mean’ receives it.

3) Pap smears every five years unless otherwise indicated.

4) Tighten blood and other tests paid for by Medicare. People are just checking their bloods all the time when unnecessary. They should pay for it themselves, and the same goes for radiology.
