How do APNs get reimbursed by Medicare in Australia?

Makko Makko (New) New

I am a graduate student from the United States. I currently have a health care policy paper pertaining to Advanced Practice Nurses (APN) and government reimbursement, namely Medicare. One of the topics within my paper involves how APNs, in another country, accomplishes reimbursement. I chose to see how the latter subject manner is achieved in Australia. I want to be clear on my topic, so I thought the best approach would be to personally contact someone in Australia. Could you please give me some direction/insight on how APNs are paid, if at all, by the government? How is the pay different between primary care physicians and primary care APNs? If possible where can I find the information on a website. Thanks!
