We already have a system where time to access treatment is based on ability to pay rather than medical need, which is scandalous enough. And you genuinely want there to be extra advantages for the wealthy? I'm glad most of our political parties disagree and have a strategy to move away from this two tier system.
I didn’t read anywhere in the post you quoted where the poster suggested there should be extra advantages for the wealthy? There should be extra advantages for people who are willing to pay privately for their own healthcare, a system which our political parties are trying to make everyone move towards by putting additional levies on people who only choose to take out private health insurance in later life, in an attempt to make people take out private health insurance when they’re younger.
One of the benefits private health insurance providers are able to offer to their customers is earlier access to innovative treatments. It’s not unfair when the person is paying for it, that’s how insurance works!
Whether or not the Minister for Health decides to approve the early intervention treatments for public patients is entirely up to him, but simply suggesting it’s “unfair” that the treatments aren’t available on the public dime when it’s not cost-effective to do so, that’s not unfair when it’s exactly what people who choose to pay for private health insurance are paying for!
