Title: Medicare and PBS usage in the Northern Territory
Authors: Malyon, Rosalyn
Issue Date: Jul-2007
Publisher: Health Gains Planning, DHCS
Series/Report no.: Health Gains Planning factsheet
Abstract: This fact sheet provides updated information on Medicare and PBS usage in the NT as well as recent estimates of the cost of delivering primary care in remote NT communities. It makes the point that Medicare presently subsidises services that are delivered by general practitioners, which are absent in remote communities, where primary care services are delivered by remote area nurses and Aboriginal health workers whose services aren't eligible for Medicare benefits.
