IPN invites general practitioners and their practice team to attend Medicare - Ethical Billing in a changing world facilitated by AOGP. Ethical billing is a 1.25 hour workshop focusing on compliant, sustainable and safe billing practices. It’s a learning package with reinforcing activities and follow-up cases, that covers the back to basics of the Medicare benefit schedule.Relevance to General Practice
Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) is a key driver of the way health services are delivered into the community. This make up a large portion of Australian General Practitioners’ income, hence the importance to ensure that MBS billings are accurate and reflect the services that have been provided by the General Practitioner.
The Medicare Benefits Schedule Review Taskforce was established in June 2015 by the Minister for Health, the Hon Sussan Ley MP, following feedback from clinicians and the broader community that certain items on the MBS did not reflect clinical best practice and that the Schedule included anomalies that in some cases were creating distortions in services provided.One of the four major issues that were identified as important to consider as part of the Review was the general concerns about the complexity and lack of transparency associated with MBS arrangements.
