MRI License for Cannington!

This MRI licence is expected to benefit the many Australians living in the region through a Medicare rebate and provide an estimated 5,900 services a year – saving lives and reducing the costs for patients.

An MRI is a commonly used medical scan which gives a detailed view of the soft tissues of the body such as muscles, ligaments, brain tissue, discs and blood vessels.

It is used by doctors to diagnose and monitor a number of different medical conditions including cancer and trauma or sporting injuries.

The Medicare MRI licence for Insight Clinical Imaging would ensure important medical scans would be more accessible and affordable for constituents across Swan. 

Insight Clinical Imaging in Cannington has an MRI but until now it would cost hundreds of dollars a scan. The Medicare licence will now allow them to provide bulk-billing services to patients for lifesaving scans

Patients will receive the Medicare-covered MRI services from March.

Under the Morrison Liberal Government, Medicare spending is guaranteed and increasing every year from $24 billion in 2017–18 to $28.8 billion in 2021–22 to support health care for every Australian.

The Government is committed to delivering improved health services which includes increased hospital funding with an extra $8 billion for hospitals taking it to $29.5 billion over five years

The Liberal Government’s strong economic management ensures the continued record investment of funding into vital health initiatives including mental health, life-saving medicines, Medicare and hospitals.
