The Medicare “goose” will be “cooked” thanks to a small number of doctors ripping off the system unless they are made to change their ways, the head of the MBS Review Taskforce says.

Professor Bruce Robinson has revealed that the MBS review was his own idea, inspired by a conviction that clinicians needed to take responsibility for making it harder to game the system.
