Is the bulk billing era over?

The number of GP clinics bulk billing all their patients has halved in the last year according to a new report from the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.  The Federal Government has recently introduced reforms to incentivise GPs to bulk bill some patients, but do they go far enough? Or could the bulk billing era be over? In today’s deep dive, we’re going to ask Dr Anita Muñoz, Victorian chair of the RACGP if those reforms are likely to bring any change and what to expect from the year to come.
