Medicare wrapped in gender war reveals public funds used for prostate cancer and not for breast cancer

Mammary MRI scans can cost up to $ 1500 per session, and some women at risk require multiple exams a year to monitor potentially cancerous cells.

Medicare is embroiled in a gender war after it was revealed that MRI scans for prostate cancer are eligible for reimbursement, but not for breast cancer.

In May 2018, the liberal government dedicated up to 20 million dollars to the detection and control of prostate cancer through magnetic resonance in the new budget, however, did not make adjustments to the already failed breast cancer tax.

As things stand, only women under 50 are at serious risk of developing cancer and have at least two immediate family members who also have breast cancer and are entitled to a partial reimbursement for the service.

Under these restrictions, even those family members listed as close relatives with cancer can not receive subsidized MRIs that could help identify problems that regular mammograms or ultrasounds can not do, the Daily Telegraph reported.

Miranda Bahr, a mother of Hobart, has seen the direct ramifications of the current system.

She was diagnosed with breast cancer five years ago and was never entitled to a reimbursement for a breast MRI.

"My sister is covered by her annual MRI even though she has not had breast cancer because my mother and I have cancer," she said.

On average, more than 17,000 Australian women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year, and of those, one in five needs an MRI.

With prices in tatters and no means to subsidize costs, many women are simply giving up scanning.

Some forms of the disease, as well as different types of breast, make it difficult for doctors to detect cancer through regular mammography and ultrasound procedures.

The Australian government has responded to public protest regarding medical procedures in the past.

When the word spread cancer of women was in a band higher than that of men in health fund policies, the laws were amended efficiently.

The government must still respond to the latest revelation.
