Government’s PBS delay risks health outcomes
The Australian Greens said today the Government was putting the health of Australians at risk by deferring the addition of medicines to the PBS as a cost-cutting measure.
Senator Rachel Siewert, Australian Greens health spokesperson said today that the Government was ignoring the advice of its clinical health economics experts.
“This is nothing but short term thinking from the Government,” said Senator Siewert.
“People who can not access the right medicines will end up costing the health system more as their health deteriorates.
