MBS Reviews - AMA Warns that Massive Reforms Require More Detail
The AMA has lodged its submission to the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) Review Specialist and Consultant Physician Consultation Clinical Committee (SCPCCC) report.
In the Submission, the AMA warns that the report is proposing massive change – time-tiered attendance items, in particular – but providing very little detail on implementation or impact on the range of specialists and their patients. In the end, the AMA could not support the recommendations in the absence of more detail and more consultation.
