AMA Submission - MBS Review Clinical Committee Report on Anaesthesia and the maximum three item rule

5 Nov 2018

In November 2018, the AMA President, Dr Tony Bartone, wrote to the Chair of the MBS Review Taskforce, Prof Bruce Robinson to provide feedback on the MBS Review Clinical Committee Report on Anaesthesia.

In his letter to Prof Robinson, Dr Bartone also raised concerns regarding the proposed maximum three item rule for surgical (MBS Group T8) items in the MBS Review Clinical Committee Report on Urology. 

Furthermore, Dr Bartone called on the MBS Review Taskforce to make the Clinical Committee reports publicly available on the internet and urged the Taskforce to consider extended consultation timelines to ensure proposed changes are based on robust clinical and profession feedback.
