No equality in Medicare, PBS: tell your MP you don't like it

Did you know that the Australian Government does not recognise equality in Medicare and the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS)? 

Same-sex headed families suffer financially when they most need assistance – when there is a member of the family that has fallen ill.  The VGLRL has launched a campaign supporting the extension of Medicare and PBS benefits to same-sex headed families. 

Help make a difference. You can help make a difference by e-mailing your elected members of the Australian Parliament, and get them working for you. They have an obligation to consider and respond to all correspondence they receive, and your email will help to improve the lives of many same-sex headed families. 

Help us gain fair and equal access to Medicare for everyone.  Write to your Federal Representatives now>>
