Compendium of Priorities and Initiatives (Continued)
Medicare Australia Access points
Funding of $7.7 million will be provided in 2010‑11 to maintain access to a number of Medicare Australia services in rural and metropolitan areas with limited access to a Medicare Office. This funding will provide for 800 access points to continue to operate in Pharmacies, Post offices, Village Centres, General Stores and health centres in areas where it is not appropriate to open a Medicare Australia office.
Further information about these and other human services initiatives relating to rural and regional Australia is available at www.humanservices.gov.au.
