Written by Emma Tommasini

Thanks to the publics incredible efforts, the Government has bowed to public pressure over the axing of natural therapy rebates.

The review update will also look at removing the 'banned' list so insurers can cover whichever therapies they want, even if they won't attract the Subsidy. 

13,323 members of the public took the time to send a personalised message to Minister Hunt and LNP MPs and Senators. All major parties now recognise this is an important public issue that won't go away.
