Items 63454 and 63460
This change will enable the prerequisite tertiary ultrasound to be conducted in a public hospital or by a private provider. Currently, these items require that an MBS rebateable tertiary ultrasound be claimed before accessing this service (63454 and 63460 - Obstetric MRI) and this has affected patient access.
