GPs will have access to 30 new MBS items specifically for eating disorders from 1 November, following recommendations of an MBS Taskforce Review last year.  

The items apply to patients with a diagnosis of anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge-eating disorder or other specified feeding or eating disorders who meet eligibility criteria set out under MBS rules, the Department of Health says.
