Rachel Adler made this Freedom of Information request to Department of Health

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Department of Health should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

From: Rachel Adler

Delivered

To the Hon. Sussan Ley,
Minister of Health MP

Dear Madam,
I write to you under the Freedom of Information Act 1982. The Media Release 1st January 2016 on Discount PBS prescriptions states that those prescriptions have been reduced by $1. What documents and reports do you have that resulted in the conclusion of such a small amount and not a greater reduction?

I would appreciate your providing this documentation at your earliest convenience.

Yours faithfully,
Rachel Adler.
