什么是医疗差距?

A medical gap (or out-of-pocket cost) is the difference between your doctor's fee and the combined amount of the Medicare rebate and the benefit your private health insurer will pay for a medical service. Government Medicare rebates have not kept pace with the increasing costs of delivering treatment.

The AMA has long campaigned for better indexation of Medicare schedule fees. Since 1999, we have included a fee gaps chart in the AMA Fees List to show the ever-widening gap between the indexation of Medicare schedule fees and the indices for CPI, average weekly earnings and AMA fees.

The AMA Gaps poster illustrates how successive Governments have failed to index the Medicare schedule fees in line with the CPI and average weekly earnings.

随着低于PAR的指数年份的同期,今天在Medicare日程费用与提供服务的现实成本之间存在相当的断开。

AMA鼓励成员向患者解释这一点。海报是一种简单的方法,展示为什么他们可能需要支付差距。
