Item 6087
From 1 October 2017, practices that are participating in the Health Care Homes stage one trial will commence enrolling patients. Health Care Homes can choose to charge patients an out-of-pocket amount. This item facilitates the recording of an attendance for which a patient incurs an out-of-pocket expense for the treatment associated with the patient’s chronic or complex condition, and for these out-of-pocket expenses to contribute to the patient’s Medicare Safety Net threshold(s).

Heath Care Home enrolled patients eligible to access MBS-funded allied health services
Health Care Home enrolled patients will be eligible to access MBS-funded allied health services that were previously triggered by the completion of a GP Management Plan, or where relevant, a Health Assessment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People, or a GP Mental Health Treatment Plan. The patient’s enrolment with the Health Care Home and development of a shared care plan will now trigger the patient’s eligibility.
