Why the MBS Taskforce Review pain plan hurts GPs
As suggestions for health reform go, it’s attracted more ridicule than most.
Another expert clinical committee within the MBS Taskforce Review — this time the pain specialists — is suggesting a new, multidisciplinary MBS care plan item to better support the care of Australians blighted by chronic pain.
It sounds like a good idea.
Through this item, eligible patients would be able to access MBS rebates for an extended range of allied health services, including physiotherapy, psychology and exercise physiology.
