NCOSS Submission to the Senate Standing Committees on Community Affairs on the National Health Amendment (Pharmaceutical Benefits) Bill 2014: NCOSS does not support the proposed measures as they are regressive and place the biggest financial burden on low-to-middle income people who already experience the greatest burden of illness and disease. Cost barriers to medicines will lead to more preventable and expensive health problems and increased costs to the health system longterm.
