THE IMPORTANCE OF ASO MEMBERSHIP

FEATURING DR. BILL GLASSON, CURRENT ASO MEMBER

Former AMA President Dr Bill Glasson has been a member of the ASO for most of his ophthalmology career. He believes membership of the Society is an investment every ophthalmologist should make.

“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.

Safeguard

The battles we fight today safeguard ophthalmology practice for tomorrow.

Medico-Political

While RANZCO oversees the education, qualification and training of ophthalmologists in Australia, the ASO represents ophthalmologists in the medico-political space.

protection

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.
