Raise level C rebate to $96 and fund annual child health checks: RACGP  

The college is also calling for a 20% rebate boost for mental health consults.

The RACGP wants a 20% increase to Medicare rebates for level C, level D and mental health consults, saying the current rebate structure undermines chronic disease care.  

Ahead of May’s federal budget, the college says the lower per-minute rebates for longer consults can mean that “the sicker a person gets, the more they pay out of pocket to see their GP”.
