Since the time Health Minister Tanya Plibersek announced the new dental scheme for low income children and families, she has been getting a lot of mixed response from experts and opposition.
The new dental scheme will initiate in 2014 and will start after the government abolishes the existing Medicare dental scheme, which was being started by the opposition party. After coming across the news, health experts have applauded the news, as they were quite concerned that the Labor Government has only been concentrating on aged care and mentally ill.
On the other hand, Opposition Leader Tony Abbott was of the view that the government has already made a lot of promises and wants to know from where it is going to generate funds. On this, Plibersek said that she is quite confident that they will find savings, which will help to initiate the scheme.
She also ensured that no cuts will be made from health sector as were being made by the former government. "But we won't just take the axe to programs, like they have in Queensland and Victoria using a heavy handed and unsophisticated approach", further affirmed Plibersek. A little adjustment will need to be made and they are sure that savings will be generated after that, asserted Plibersek.
