The Extended Medicare Safety Net (EMSN) provides an additional rebate for Australian families and singles who incur out-of-pocket costs for Medicare eligible out-of-hospital services. Once the relevant annual threshold of out-of-pocket costs has been met, Medicare will pay for 80% of any future out-of-pocket costs for out-of-hospital Medicare services for the remainder of the calendar year. However, there is an upper limit on the amount of benefit that can be paid under the EMSN for a small number of Medicare services.
There are two thresholds for the EMSN. These thresholds are indexed by the Consumer Price Index (CPI) on 1 January each year.
The 2013 annual EMSN thresholds are:
$610.70 for Commonwealth concession cardholders, including those with a Pensioner Concession Card, a Health Care Card or a Commonwealth Seniors Card, and people who receive Family Tax Benefit (Part A); and
$1,221.90 for all other singles and families.
The 2014 annual EMSN thresholds, effective from 1 January 2014, will be:
$624.10 for Commonwealth concession cardholders, including those with a Pensioner Concession Card, a Health Care Card or a Commonwealth Seniors Card, and people who receive Family Tax Benefit (Part A); and
$1,248.70 for all other singles and families.
Couples and families should contact the Department of Human Services – Medicare to register their family members as part of a Medicare eligible family. Registering as a family allows eligible out-of-pocket costs for each individual family member to count toward the family’s EMSN threshold. Couples and families need to register even if all family members are listed on the Medicare card. Registration is only required once unless family members change, for example, if a dependent child is no longer studying or you have a newborn baby.
What are out-of-hospital services?
Out-of-hospital services include GP and specialist attendances, services provided in private clinics and private emergency departments, and many pathology and diagnostic imaging services. However, many day surgery facilitates are classified as hospitals in Australia. The distinction between in-hospital and out-of-hospital services is not always obvious. It is important that patients talk with their doctors regarding the classification and likely out-of-pocket costs for their medical treatment, including any rebates paid through Medicare.
What services are not eligible for the EMSN?
In-hospital services are not eligible for the EMSN. Where people receive their treatment in-hospital as a private patient they are eligible for a Medicare rebate equal to 75 per cent of the Medicare Schedule fee. If they hold Private Health Insurance (PHI), they may also receive a rebate from their PHI fund.
What is EMSN benefit capping?
The EMSN benefit cap is the maximum amount of EMSN benefits payable for a Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) item regardless of the fee charged by the doctor. A full list of the affected MBS items and the levels of the EMSN benefit caps appears later in this document.
Why are some services capped?
Following an announcement in the 2009-2010 Budget, on 1 January 2010 some Medicare items were capped after they were identified as areas of concern in the Extended Medicare Safety Net Review Report 2009 (the Review report). The Review report showed that for some services, such as obstetrics and assisted reproductive technology (ART), the EMSN had been used by specialist doctors to raise their fees knowing the taxpayer would cover 80 per cent of the fee rise. This has implications for people that have not qualified for the EMSN. The EMSN benefit is intended to be a patient benefit; it is not intended to be a mechanism for doctors to increase their fees.
Since 1 January 2010 a number of MBS services have since been listed on the MBS with EMSN benefit caps in place. These services have been capped to maintain consistency with the existing capped items, or as a result of recommendations made by the Medical Services Advisory Committee (MSAC) regarding cost effectiveness.
The 2009 Extended Medicare Safety Net Review Report can be found on the Department of Health website.
EMSN benefit capping announced in the 2012-13 Budget
As announced in the 2012-13 Federal Budget, from 1 November 2012 EMSN benefit caps apply to all consultations (including allied health), 38 procedural items and one ultrasound item. The new caps are calculated based on a percentage of the MBS fee.
For consultation items the EMSN benefit cap is set at 300 per cent of the MBS fee, up to a maximum cap of $500. Therefore, if a consultation item has an MBS fee of $100, the EMSN benefit cap is $300. If the consultation item has an MBS fee of $200, the EMSN benefit cap is $500. Note: All consultations, including GP, specialist, consultant physician and allied health, will have an EMSN cap.
For the other ‘non-consultation’ items that were capped on 1 November 2012, the EMSN benefit cap is equal to 80 per cent of the MBS fee. For these items there is no upper limit on the setting of the cap. Therefore if an item has an MBS fee of $800, the EMSN benefit cap is $640.
The level of the EMSN benefit caps will increase in line with the MBS fees and rebates on November, rather than on 1 January of each year. This will ensure that a patient’s maximum Medicare benefit (ie. the base Medicare rebate plus their EMSN benefit) will not change more than once in a calendar year.
The items capped in the 2012-13 Budget include those where excessive fees are being charged, where there has been excessive growth in EMSN benefits in the past few years, where the EMSN is being used to subsidise items that could be used for cosmetic purposes and where there is a risk that practitioners could shift excessive fees onto other items such as consultations.
How do the EMSN benefit caps work in practice?
Most people are not affected by capping. If you have a capped item you still receive the standard Medicare rebate for the service and once you have reached the EMSN threshold you are still eligible to receive EMSN benefits for all out-of-hospital services. EMSN benefit capping does not affect the way patients qualify for the EMSN, meaning that all out-of-pocket costs for all MBS services that have an EMSN benefit cap count toward the patients EMSN threshold.
All patients who have reached their EMSN threshold are eligible to receive an EMSN benefit up to the amount of the EMSN benefit cap each time that they claim for a capped service.
The EMSN benefit caps are recorded in Medicare Australia claiming systems and are applied by Medicare Australia at the time of processing the claim for payment. Practitioners are required to bill the Medicare item that best describes the service that they provide.
Additionally, under the Health Insurance Act 1973, the amount that is specified on the account must be the amount charged for the service that is specified. This means that any component for other goods or services that are not part of the MBS item that is being billed must not be included in the fee for that item. For example, the fee charged for a service cannot be loaded onto the fee for another service.
How do I calculate my EMSN benefit?
For a capped item the method for determining the EMSN benefit is the same, that is 80 per cent of the patient’s out-of-pocket cost once the patient has reached the EMSN threshold. If this amount is greater than the EMSN benefit cap, the patient receives the EMSN benefit cap amount. If the calculated benefit is less than the EMSN benefit cap, the patient receives the calculated benefit (which is equal to 80 per cent of the out-of-pocket costs for the claim).
Out-of pocket cost is the difference between the fee charged by the doctor and the standard Medicare rebate received by the patient from Medicare before EMSN benefits are paid.
The following scenario illustrates how the EMSN caps work. The scenario assumes that the patient has already reached their EMSN threshold and is therefore eligible to receive EMSN benefits.
Item 16500, an antenatal attendance has an MBS Fee of $47.15, an out-of-hospital MBS rebate of $40.10 and an EMSN benefit cap of $32.95, for services provided after 1 January 2013.
If the doctor charges $70.00 for the service, the patient’s out-of-pocket cost before EMSN benefits are paid is $29.90 (doctor’s fee minus the MBS rebate received). The EMSN benefit for this service is calculated to be $23.95 (80% of the patient’s out-of-pocket cost). As the calculated EMSN benefit is below the EMSN benefit cap amount of $32.95, the patient will receive the full $23.95 in EMSN benefits. As a result, the total cost incurred by the patient is $5.95.
If the doctor charges $90.00 for the service, the patient’s out-of-pocket cost before EMSN benefits are paid is $49.90 (doctor’s fee minus the MBS rebate received). The EMSN benefit for this service would be calculated to be $39.95 (80% of the out-of-pocket cost) however, as this item has an EMSN benefit cap, the patient will receive the cap amount of $32.95. As a result, the total cost incurred by the patient is $16.95.
The EMSN benefit caps only apply to out-of-hospital services, as EMSN benefits are only paid for out-of-hospital services. The EMSN benefit caps do not impact on the amount patients receive through their private health insurance.
The full list of MBS items is available online on the MBS website. The website lists all the Medicare services and the associated MBS schedule fees and rebates for each item. The EMSN benefit cap will appear in the item description on MBS online, if the item has an EMSN benefit cap.
Changes to Obstetrics and Assisted Reproductive Technology on 1 January 2010
With the introduction of EMSN capping on 1 January 2010, a number of structural changes were made to obstetrics and ART services, including the introduction of new items and changes to Medicare rebates and item descriptors. Some of these changes are outlines below:
On 1 January 2010 two items for consultations relating to pregnancy, 16401 and 16404, were introduced into the obstetrics section of the MBS. These items have the same fee as specialist attendance items 104 and 105 however they carry an EMSN benefit cap. These items continue to be restricted to specialists.
The item for the planning and management of a pregnancy was split into two items. Item 16590 is claimable for planning and managing a pregnancy that has progressed beyond 20 weeks where the practitioner intends to perform the labour and delivery. Item 16591 is claimable for planning and managing a pregnancy that has progressed beyond 20 weeks where the practitioner does not intend to perform the labour and delivery.
With the introduction of capping the base Medicare rebates for 15 obstetrics items was increased at a cost of $157.6 million over four years. The Medicare rebates for obstetrics attendance items and labour and delivery items where increased by 10 per cent and 30 per cent respectively. In addition the Medicare rebate for item 16590 – planning and management of a pregnancy was increased significantly. This is of particular benefit to those women that do not qualify for EMSN benefits.
Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART)
With the introduction of capping, the Medicare items for ART services, including In-Vitro Fertilisation (IVF), were restructured in negotiation with the ART profession and patient group ACCESS. This structure better reflects current clinical practice. There are no restrictions on the number of ART cycles patients can have under Medicare.
