Strengthening Medicare: will increasing the bulk-billing rate and supply of general practitioners increase access to Medicare-funded general practitioner services and does rurality matter?

23 Aug 2005
Description

Recent increases in the bulk-billing rate have been taken as an indication that the federal government's Strengthening Medicare initiative, and particularly the bulk-billing incentives, are working.
