CHF welcomed the opportunity to put in a submission on these proposed savings measures. We did not have time to consult our members explicitly on this Bill but we did consult them when the measures were announced as part of the Budget and as the measures have not changed the position remain the same.

We have commented on three of the measures in the Bill; changes to dental services, indexation of private health insurance thresholds and the abolition of the National Health Performance Authority.
