Help when claiming MBS items for children with disabilities

27 Oct 2016

The Department of Human Services (DHS) has updated its education guide for the Better Start for Children with Disability initiative to make claiming easier. The guide outlines Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) items available under the initiative for the early diagnosis and treatment of eligible children with a disability.

The guide now includes a diagram with MBS items you can claim, and the requirements for referrals, treatment, management plans and reporting. It adds to other Medicare Benefits Schedule educational resources for health professionals to help you understand claiming requirements.
