Sussan Ley's claims Medicare freeze lift blocked by department

Updated about 4 hours ago
Health Minister Sussan Ley claims her push to lift the Government's freeze on Medicare rebates is being blocked by departmental red tape.

This is just after Labor announces an end to freeze?

Ms Ley said this morning she wanted to lift the freeze but the Finance and Treasury departments were not "allowing" her to make the change.

This is after the Government announced in this month's budget the indexation freeze would be extended until at least 2020, which doctors are warning will lead to less bulk billing.

Mr Turnbull apparently trying to cover his governments arse, said the indexation freeze would "end at some point" in the future and, despite doctors' warnings, bulk billing rates were still high.
