This page provides the latest news from the AMA on the MBS review.
Since 2015, the Federal Government has been undertaking a review of the Medicare Benefits Schedule to consider how medical services can be aligned with contemporary clinical evidence and practice. The work is being led by the MBS Review Taskforce and a number of clinical sub-committees and working groups.
The AMA has been active on behalf of the medical profession to ensure the process and outcomes of the MBS review are clinician-led and patient focussed.
The AMA encourages the profession to get involved with the reviews to ensure they are clinician-led and supported by best evidence. This will be best achieved though direct engagement with the specialty medical Colleges, Associations and Societies (CAS).
As the AMA receives MBS Review clinical committee reports, as part of the MBS Review targeted consultation process, a high level summary of the report recommendations will be provided here.
If AMA members would like the AMA to advocate on significant issues arising from the MBS Review clinical committee reports please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
