Earlier this month ATMS CEO, Charles Wurf and ATMS Director, Christine Pope, headed to Canberra to meet with politicians and lobby on behalf of members and advance the review of the Natural Therapies Rebates.

ATMS are working with the Health Funds and how we’re positioning the return of natural therapies to the rebate by April 2020. With the Review underway ATMS will continue to work collaboratively across therapies and intends to submit appropriate evidence sources to the Panel. With the establishment of the Panel, and assuming sound Terms of Reference with appropriate standards of evidence, ATMS looks forward to a positive review process.

As part of our continuing advocacy on behalf of members, ATMS met with members of the government and the cross bench during our most recent visit to Canberra. The purpose of our meetings is to confirm with government our vital interest in the Review. ATMS continues to advocate that natural therapies should return to their rightful place within the private health insurance system.
