The government encourages GPs to bulk bill vulnerable patients by paying them for each time they bulk bill. That payment is a "bulk billing incentive". 

But in 14 areas across Australia, including Newcastle, Scott Morrison has slashed the size of this payment.

Some GPs are now warning that they’ll have to stop bulk billing children, pensioners and other concession patients or close. Others GPs have already been forced to do this. 

Labor will always fight for vulnerable Australians. We need your help to get the government to guarantee to protect bulk billing incentives.
