Do you want to be kept up-to-date on when we receive new fee schedules that are to be made available to you, a Genie user, to use for your billing? If so, you’re in the right place!
From time to time, Medicare will release updates to the Medicare Benefits Schedule. Likewise, other organisations such as private health funds and WorkCover also release fee schedule updates, sometimes multiple times throughout the year. This page is intended to advise you when new fee schedules have been received by us, even if they haven’t made it into Genie itself yet.
Bookmark and regularly check this page for fee schedule status updates.
Did you know?
When new fee schedules are released by Medicare, health funds, and WorkCover, they are not always provided to Genie. As a result, our team needs to track these schedules down so that they can then be processed into an appropriate format for download through your Genie application. This process can be quite in-depth and occasionally time-consuming, but you can rest assured - we're always doing our best to try and have these schedules available to you as soon as possible. These schedules can then be downloaded via your Software Updates menu in Genie.
We also understand that Medicare frequently release new item numbers for a variety of specialties. To check what Medicare Schedule contains the new item numbers that may be applicable to your practice, see the Medicare - Latest News page!

**ADF Health Services (formally known as Garrison Health by Medibank Health Solutions) fees will be applicable for services rendered 1 July 2019 onward.
***Garrison Health fees will no longer be updated, as the contract between ADF and Medibank Health Solutions will cease from 1 July 2019. Services rendered after this date must be billed through Bupa's new online portal, with the fees available by downloading the ADF Health schedule. For more information on this change, please refer to the ADF Health Services article.
If you believe a new fee schedule is available for any organisation/fund, please let us know by contacting our Support team.
