ANALYSIS OF THE 2019 - 20 FEDERAL BUDGET

Dr Henry Cutler, Dr Joanne Epp, Mona Aghdaee and Andrew Partington

Executive Summary

While some have labelled this a cash splash Budget, health portfolio expenditure has been shackled. This fits within a recent trend of ever lower annual expenditure growth since 2016-17.

There will be a 2 per cent increase in real expenditure from 2019-20 to 2022-23. Most of this growth comes in the last two years of Budget projections. Australians face a reduction in per capita health portfolio expenditure over the next two years.

This is a grass roots Health portfolio budget, with the Australian Government looking to garner approval from local communities. It has allocated funding to several individual infrastructure projects, health programs and not-for-profit groups.

The centrepiece Budget item is the $1.1 billion allocated over five years to support primary care. Aged care was allocated $724.8 million over the next five years for residential care and Home Care packages, but most of this funding was already announced.

This Budget continues to implement the Fifth National Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Plan, allocating funds to after-hours mental health treatment centres, and to reduce our alarming youth suicide rate.

The Australian Government has missed an opportunity to tackle some pressing healthcare issues associated with obesity, public hospital waiting lists, and high out-of-pocket costs.

Assessing choice for public hospital patients by Dr Henry Cutler, Dr Yuanyuan Gu and ms Emma Olin

This report answers the following two important questions.

  • Do Australians want more choice between public hospitals for elective surgery?
  • Would Australians exercise their right to choose a public hospital based on quality vs. convenience?

The report presents an analysis of 1,000 Australians surveyed, which sought information on respondent attitudes towards greater choice. The study also employed a discrete choice experiment (DCE) to estimate the relative value of seven hospital attributes representing convenience, GP and public opinion, and hospital quality.

Health budget overview 2017-18 by Dr Henry Cutler

According to Sun Tzu (an ancient Chinese military strategist) ‘the supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting’. The 2017-18 Budget has firmed up the coalition party flank against future health care attacks by the Labor government, after the Medi-Scare campaign nearly lost it an election.  

The biggest winners are medical practitioners, with the gradual removal of a pause in indexation arrangements for MBS items. Australians also benefit, through greater access to drugs. Additional expenditure will be covered by large savings from drug price reductions, and an increase in the Medicare Levy rate from 2.0 to 2.5 per cent.

The value of health information by Dr Henry Cutler

Never has there been so much information so readily available, but despite improvements in information technology, our health system is struggling to maximise its true value. In this paper Dr Henry Cutler, Director of Macquarie’s Centre for the Health Economy looks at why more information doesn’t necessarily translate to better healthcare.

Overview of the 2016 Federal Health Budget by Dr Henry Cutler

The biggest winner from the federal health budget is the government, while the biggest losers are private providers reliant on the MBS, and aged care providers reliant on ACFI funding. The ability of providers to pass on lost revenue to patients through increased co-payments will ultimately determine whether this budget hurts the hip pockets of Australians.

Competition in health and human service by Dr Henry Cutler

Introducing greater competition in health care is appealing. Standard economic theory suggests increased competition can deliver greater choice and improve productivity.  But health care is complex. It is unlike the retail sector where people are relatively well informed and purchases are repeated. Nor does it operate like utilities, where the product is relatively homogenous and the primary objective for operators is efficiency. In this paper Dr Cutler explores the role of Competition Policy in health and human services and its impact on outcomes.
