Medicare was first introduced in 1984. Medicare pays for the hospitals and medical services from funds from the general tax revenue.
    • 4. If you are a resident of Australia you have access to medicare if your eligible. When the patient goes to see the doctor, there is no limit on fees charged by the doctors but there is a fee for schedule visits. The doctors send the bill to the Health Insurance Commission (HIC). The HIC will cover about 85% of the cost from the visit. Public hospitals are owned by the state.

    • 6. *Government pays about 70% of healthcare costs (approximately 47% from the federal and 23% from state governments), the remainder is paid by non-government sources. 48% of public hospitals are federal funded and 45% are state funded. Medical services are 82% federal funded with the balance paid by the patient. The people that go to the public hospitals receive treatment by doctors and specialists nominated by the hospital. *http://www.dfat.gov.au/facts/healthcare.pdf

    • 9. Private health insurance covers 8.6% net of health costs and receives 30% subsidy from the federal government. 45% of the population has private health insurances. About half of all the Australians have private insurance. Average cost for a family is between A$1,000 and A$2,000 per year (US$539 to US$1,078). *Almost 70% of total health expenditure in Australia is funded by government. *http://www.dfat.gov.au/facts/healthcare.pdf
    • 10. If the patient is covered for private health, some or all of the balance of cost will be covered. The Australian Government also funds universal medical services and pharmaceuticals and gives financial assistance to public hospitals, residential aged care facilities, and home and community care for the aged. The residents in Australia have a great set up of healthcare. One thing that people have concern with is the waiting times at public hospitals. The main waiting lists are for orthopedic and cataract surgery.

    • 12. The royal Flying Doctor Service was first found in 1928. It is a 24 hour/365 day air medical emergency healthcare service to people who are in Australia. The Flying Doctor Service serves 242,000 people a year and 35,000 of them are medically transported. They have 21 bases and 47 aircrafts that fly over. It cover 22 kilometers annually. The flying service was funded by the government since July 1, 2007.
    • 13. The government has signed healthcare agreements with the governments of the United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, Finland, Italy, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, and Sweden. If Australia has visitors from these countries they are eligible for Medicare assistance. If they need treatment from a hospital, they are only eligible as Medicare patients, not private. Not many other countries offer this.
    • 14. The United States health care systems are ranked number one in cost. Life expectancy in the US is ranked 50th. The facilities are operated by private sectors mainly. Even though the system is mainly in the private hands, federal, state, country, and city governments also own certain facilities. The health service in Australia is universal and in the United States it is not. 15.3% of the people are uninsured in America.
    • 15. Also, they both have two programs for poor and older people just like we have in the U.S. Examples are Medicare and Medicaid. Both also have issues with using too much substances and abusing them. Now, with Australia having universal healthcare, they are at the top at having substance abuse in Oceania. But like Australia, the U.S. is also at the top in for drug abuse in North America. A major difference is how Australia will cover some countries if they have people visit.
