Local Federal MP Tony Pasin has welcomed news that bulk billing rates locally continue to grow.

December last year bulk billing rates hit an all-time high of 89.3 %, compared to just 81.9% in 2012.

Member for barker Tony Pasin Said “This is great news for people in my electorate of Barker, which means they are able to see their GP and get the help and support they need when they need it with no out of pocket costs,”

During covid-19 restrictions last year, many locals utilised Medicare subsided telehealth in the Riverland as well as further afield.
