Your thoughts? URGENT UNION MEETINGS ABOUT HEALTH OVERPAYMENT RECOVERY PROPOSAL

Posted July 16, 2011 by Alex Scott

Union delegates and officials have consistently put the position to the government that members should not have to repay money that is an alleged overpayment back to QHealth if they could not get accurate data, or if they were in fact owed money by QHealth.

In further meetings between union representatives and QHealth over the last week the Minister for Health, Geoff Wilson, intervened and has made a new offer with a proposed resolution to some problems regarding the overpayments recovery process.

What has been proposed is that Unions and QHealth sign up to a "Heads of Agreement" document. As union members we need to hear what you think about the proposal so that delegates can let the Minister know what you think.

Your Health Council delegates have considered this proposal and are seeking your views on whether it should be endorsed.

Meetings will be held around the State next week give members a chance to have their voice heard. The following meetings have already been arranged:

Monday 18th July

10.30am QE11 2B conference room
12:00pm (Noon) QHSS Auditorium

Meetings are also being arranged in the major regional hospitals and the time and place of those meetings will be announced as soon as possible.

For Health centres not listed, if members and delegates would like to hold meetings a copy of the proposed Heads of Agreement and meeting notes can be downloaded here.

Any feedback should be provided by 5pm Thursday, 21 July to health@qpsu.org.au.

We look forward to hearing your views, as a union we will then put the majority decision back to the Minister.
