On 9 July 2020, the Department of Health updated the question and answers document on the hibernation of the Medical Technology Association of Australia (MTAA) Strategic Agreement (refer PHI 37/20).

The question and answers document now clarifies that sponsors are required to pay Prostheses List fees throughout the period of hibernation. 

The Minister for Health, the Hon Greg Hunt MP, previously agreed to pause all Prostheses List reform work under the MTAA Strategic Agreement, reviews, and some other activities for a period of up to 12 months commencing 1 April 2020. This decision was made in recognition of the COVID-19 impact.
