Lift Medicare rebates to reflect the actual amount paid for Health services

Medicare rebates are currently totally out of Sync with the actual cost of healthcare services, as an example one Healthcare Provider I currently see charges $150.00 per session yet Medicare only provides a rebate of $70.00 for that service, If Medicare cannot currently afford to minimize that gap payment then perhaps the Medicare surcharge should be increased from 1 percent to 2 percent of Gross Income so average Aussies are not penalised for having Health Issues beyond their control.
