As you may know, an updated Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) has been released on November 1st, 2018. This fee schedule is available for download within Genie from Special>Software Updates.
In line with the changes to the Medicare schedule, the health funds will likely release their own updated schedules in the coming days and weeks. As these are made available to us, we will test them thoroughly and make them available for download through Genie as soon as possible.
As always, we recommend finalising all outstanding billing prior to updating your fees, and you must ensure that no one will be doing any billing while the update takes place. When you're ready, you can carry out the update by following the instructions in our Updating Fee Schedules article.
Finally, it's important to note that the updated MBS contains significant changes to spinal/neurological items. If you this is likely to affect your practice and billing, you can familiarise yourself with these changes by visiting the MBS Online website.
