Co-payments for health care: what is their real cost? 
Tracey-Lea Laba, Tim Usherwood, Stephen Leeder, Farhat Yusuf, James Gillespie, Vlado Perkovic, Andrew Wilson, Stephen Jan and Beverley Essue

This paper is based on a recent submission to the Senate inquiry into the impact of out-of-pocket costs in Australia. We argue that introducing additional copayments in primary practice will exacerbate the substantial economic burden currently faced by individuals and families as a result of out-of-pocket costs for health care and create financial barriers to access. To improve the efficiency and sustainability of health spending, other inadequacies in the health system should be addressed such that the last three decades of universalism can be preserved.
