Push to fix home care price gouging

Australians desperately want more home care and they expect more to be announced in the Budget. But they also want an end to the high management fees and price gouging by inefficient providers.

Last week, Rebekah Sharkie, member for Mayo in South Australia, rose in question time to ask the government what it was doing to stop price gouging in home care.
