There are a range of measures when it comes to determining what those out-of-pocket costs are. Some of those, in terms of the reporting, have been looked at outside of what government provides. So I would suggest that senators opposite should not necessarily take as gospel what we are seeing in one particular report.

Unlike those opposite, this government is prepared to take the tough decisions when it comes to budgets to make sure we have not only a sustainable health system into the future but a sustainable economy. That is the right thing to do for the Australian people, and that is what this government will continue to do.
