From 1 November 2018 there’ll be changes to the Medicare Claims Review Panel (MCRP) and related MBS items.
The changes were announced in the 2018-19 Budget. The MCRP will be dissolved, and changes will be made to related MBS items.
To claim for services requiring approval by the MCRP, you’ll need to submit MCRP applications by 1 September 2018 where possible.
You must perform any service for an MBS item the MCRP has approved for a Medicare benefit, no later than 31 October 2018.
After 31 October 2018 services are subject to the new rules.
