MBS REVIEW TASKFORCE
AMA President, A/Prof Brian Owler, will be available to comment on the Government’s announcement of a Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) Taskforce at 12.00 noon, today Wednesday 22 April 2015, at AMA NSW, Ground Floor Conference Room, 69 Christie St, St Leonards.
A/Prof Owler said the AMA supports the Taskforce and the other reviews being established by the Government, but does not want the review process being all about cutting vital services to patients.
The AMA also wants the Government to scrap its four-year freeze on Medicare patient rebates indexation.
