Adam and the Greens have a plan to get the rest of dental into Medicare by 2018, to reverse hospital cuts and to defend and extend Disability Care.
A more caring society
Australians are a caring people. We want to help those who are vulnerable or victims of circumstance. We want a society that creates the time and space for people to live caring lives. However, whether at work or at home, people are feeling under more pressure and less able to live the rich, fulfilling lives they want. Adam and the Greens have a plan to relieve that pressure, support people where they need it and foster a better quality of life for everyone.
Getting Dental into Medicare
Because Melbourne voted for Adam in 2010, 3.4 million kids have access to Medicare-funded dental cover. The Greens secured this during negotiations to form the government in 2010. We have a costed plan to get the rest of dental into Medicare by 2018.
Investing in our hospitals
The Greens would invest an extra $1.5 billion in Commonwealth funds into the public hospital system over three years.
Adam and the Greens supported the passage of the disability insurance scheme through Parliament. The Greens will defend and extend Disability Care.
