AMA, college demand major rewrite of MBS Taskforce GP report

Both say 'no' to time thresholds on care plans and level B consults

The MBS Review Taskforce is under pressure to rewrite significant tracts of its radical plan to modernise MBS items for GP care amid concerns it will leave the specialty worse off.

Released in December, the task force’s draft report was given an ice-cool response from many GPs, who were concerned that if adopted by the Federal Government, it would trigger major cuts in funding for GP care.
