Updates to DVA fee schedule
AMA members are advised that the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) Fee Schedules were updated on 1 July 2021.
The changes include indexation of MBS items and the introduction of new and amended MBS listings.
GPs will continue to receive a higher rebate under DVA arrangements than under the MBS and are not permitted to charge co-payments to DVA clients.
