A GP who took the Professional Services Review to court to avoid repaying $517,000 in Medicare rebates, arguing it was harsh and unfair, has lost his case.

Dr Khaled Dik, an 80-year-old GP who has a PhD in trauma and orthopaedic surgery, was ordered to repay 90% of Medicare benefits he had claimed for 14 MBS items across a one-year period.
