Petition for CDM

  

Medicare, Australia’s publicly funded universal healthcare scheme, was created to provide free or subsidised healthcare services to all citizens.

However, these benefits are denied to the thousands of Australians who choose Chinese medicine, having experienced for themselves, or heard from acquaintances, how effective treatments such as acupuncture or Chinese herbal medicine are in managing a variety of acute and chronic diseases. They recognise that it is a system developed and tested in China across thousands of years.

The reason they get no help for their medical bills from Medicare is that Chinese medicine is excluded from the publicly funded Chronic Disease Management (CDM) scheme. Chinese medicine is one of the country’s 15 health professions approved by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency, but it is the only one of the 15 that suffers exclusion from the CDM scheme.

This arrangement against Chinese medical practitioners means an unjustified financial penalty for those attending Chinese medicine clinics.

We call on our policy makers to establish suitability of access to the highest standard of healthcare for all Australians by including the practice of Chinese medicine in the CDM scheme.
