Consultations - Medicare Benefits Schedule Review

Consultation with stakeholders, including consumers of MBS services, is key to the work of the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) Review Taskforce.

Stakeholders are welcome to make a submission on any aspect of the Taskforce’s work by emailing the MBS Review team.

How it works

Step 1: Draft recommendations from the Taskforce are released so that stakeholders can provide their feedback to the Taskforce on those reports.

Step 2: The Taskforce will then review the stakeholder feedback and request that the relevant Clinical Committee assess the comments received and decide whether any changes are needed to the recommendations before presenting the report recommendations to the Taskforce.

Step 3: The Taskforce will consider the relevant Clinical Committee feedback as well as consultation comments.

Step 4: The Taskforce will then determine whether to endorse the reports to Government.

Why we want your input

Consultation is an opportunity for the Australian public, health professionals, health consumers and any other interested person, to offer comment on recommendations proposed by the Taskforce. Consultation with stakeholders, including consumers of MBS services, is therefore integral to the processes established by the Taskforce.

Stakeholder input has been critical in shaping the Review to date. All feedback is welcome and can be addressed to the MBS Review team.
