THE IMPORTANCE OF ASO MEMBERSHIP
FEATURING DR. BILL GLASSON, CURRENT ASO MEMBER
“Medico-politcal representation at a State and Federal level is vital.”
FIVE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE ASO
We exist to be a voice for ophthalmologists practising in Australia and the patients they treat.
The battles we ﬁght today safeguard ophthalmology practice for tomorrow.
While RANZCO oversees the education, qualiﬁcation and training of ophthalmologists in Australia, the ASO represents ophthalmologists in the medico-political space.
We work to protect clinical autonomy and patient rebates.
IT’S YOUR RIGHT TO SWITCH
OUR PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE SWITCH CAMPAIGN
Is your private health insurance performing for you?
In 2018 the ASO launched the ‘It’s your right to switch’ campaign to remind every Australian who pays for private health insurance that they can switch funds if they don’t feel they are getting value for money.
The Private Health Insurance Act 2007 protects consumers who want to change to another hospital policy with the same insurer or with another insurer.
