Commencing 8 November 2021, and available until 30 June 2022, a temporary Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) item has been made available to support medical practitioners providing clinically relevant treatment to COVID-19 positive patients.

As Australia moves into the next phase of living with the COVID-19 virus, a need for additional temporary support for medical practitioners has been introduced to support the provision of care to COVID-19 positive patients who can be managed in the community effectively and safely.

MBS item 93715 is intended to support medical practitioners who are required to undertake additional measures, including PPE, in order to provide safe face-to-face services to patients with a laboratory-confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19 infection.
