The MBS Taskforce is examining in line by line each of the MBS' 5,700 plus items, to ensure they align with contemporary clinical evidence and practice and improve health outcomes for patients. The review is clinician-led and there are no targets for savings attached to the review.

Following recommendations from the Taskforce, a number of changes to the MBS will come into effect from November 2017.

You can find more information on these changes on the Department of Health's website.

The Taskforce's work is ongoing. For further information visit MBS Review.
