In April 2015, the then Minister for Health established the MBS Review Taskforce to consider how the more than 5,700 services listed in the MBS can be aligned with contemporary clinical evidence and practice, and improve health outcomes for patients. The Taskforce recently released its latest set of reports for public consultation until 21 July 2017. These six reports cover: renal medicine; spinal surgery; dermatology, allergy and immunology; diagnostic imaging of the knee; diagnostic imaging for pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis; and urgent after-hours services.
Further details about the consultation process; copies of the six reports, their factsheets and summaries for consumers; and access to the online surveys are all available at:
The webinar will include a presentation from Professor Bruce Robinson, Chair of the MBS Review Taskforce, and Ms Debra Kay, Chair of the Consumer Panel of the MBS Review Taskforce.
In order to participate in the webinar, you need to register here by COB on 20 June.
