The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) has released its 2019 Medicare Benefits Schedule fee summary.
The fee summary provides GPs and practice staff with a quick and easy reference to Medicare item numbers and patient rebates. Accompanying the fee summary is a short guide covering the most commonly used items in general practices.
Digital versions of these resources include customisable columns for clinic fees and patient out-of-pocket contributions. The fee summary also includes links to explanatory notes, information about Medicare compliance, and further information that may be of relevance.
The fee summary and short guide are available online here.
The RACGP welcomes any feedback on how the fee summary can be improved and what else they can do to support GPs in navigating the Medicare Benefits Schedule. Suggestions can be sent to the Funding and Health System Reform Team via firstname.lastname@example.org.
