The TAC has adopted the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) items, explanations, definitions, rules and conditions for services provided by medical practitioners. When invoicing for medical services, medical practitioners are expected to adhere to the MBS rules unless otherwise specified by the TAC on the Reimbursement Rates for Medical Services information page or its medical policies.
The Reimbursement Rates for Medical Services must be read in conjunction with:
- Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS)
- Clarification of Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) rules
- Other policies outlined within the Medical Practitioners section of our website
Important: The Excel spreadsheet below has been updated on 10 March 2022 with some recent MBS changes effective from 1 March. It also includes all the temporary MBS COVID19 telehealth items payable by the TAC.
Please disregard any earlier versions you have downloaded before this date.
