The Australian Health System 

As Australia has grown and changed so has its health care system. This system is one of the major responsibilities of the Australian government. The funding for the Australian health system comes mainly from a Medicare levy which is taxed on the community's income. Australia's universal health care system is Medicare, which provides affordable, accessible and high quality health care to all Australian citizens. This system gives all Australians access to adequate health care at little or no cost. The Australian health care system also operates the PBS which provides the community with cheaper medications. Alternatively, the health care system in Australia allows those that can afford it to pay for their own Private Health Insurance.
