Change Medicare Billing

This petition had 1,290 supporters

I want Medicare to make payments straight to the Doctor by swiping my Medicare card at the Surgery, then I pay only the balance owing.

i don't always have the full amount required by Doctors sometimes $450.00 for Specialists and $75.00 or more for a GP visit.  I want to go to the Doctor of my choice not the one I have to see, if I go through the public system.  I try to do the right thing and stay away from the Emergengy Department for minor things but I'm being priced out of going to the Doctors.

If I only had to pay the balance of the bill I might have a chance of going to the Doctor as much as I need to, as I have chronic medical conditions and can't afford to go all the time.
