NACCHO Aboriginal Health : MBS Review Taskforce – Next round of public consultation now open

 ” As you are aware, the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) Review Taskforce is considering every one of the more than 5,700 items on the MBS, with a focus of how the items can be better aligned with contemporary clinical evidence and practice to improve health outcomes for all Australians.
Today, the recommendations were made available for public consultation for the following clinical committees:
  • Dermatology, Allergy & Immunology
  • Diagnostic Imaging – knee imaging
  • Diagnostic Imaging – pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis
  • Renal Medicine
  • Spinal Surgery
  • Urgent after-hours primary care services funded by the MBS


The online survey is open from today until Friday July 21, 2017.
It is important to note that these recommendations are not final and are being released publicly for the purpose of obtaining stakeholder feedback.

Your input as a stakeholder is critical in shaping the Review. Please use the online surveys (rather than emailing your comments directly) for accuracy and transparency when analysing your feedback.


If you have any questions or queries on the Review or the work of the Taskforce please contact the MBS Review Team.
