From 1 November 2017, the co-claiming of subsequent attendance items were blocked when co-claimed with any surgical operation in Group T8, if the procedure has a Schedule Fee equal to or greater than $309.35 and if the same practitioner provides the procedure on the same day. This amount is subject to indexation.

Summary of changes:

From 1 November 2017, the claiming of a subsequent attendance item were blocked when co-claimed with certain surgical operations, based on a recommendation of the MBS Review Taskforce.

MBS items 6009-6015 will be included from 1 March 2021 to correct an inadvertent omission.

This change is to ensure patients receive the same MBS benefits for the same service.
