In Australia we are lucky to have a health care system called Medicare that helps to pay for our medical costs. Basic access to health providers such as our local doctor or GP and basic hospital and surgery access are funded under this scheme. Other health programs such as immunisation programs for children, the pharmaceutical benefit scheme and the teen dental health plan are also part of the Medicare service. Depending on which doctor we go to and what our requirements are will determine whether Medicare pays all or part of the cost of our visit.
