The ‘Private Health Insurance classification of MBS items 1 November 2021’ spreadsheet (the ‘PHI Spreadsheet’) is derived from the MBS XML Data file ‘MBS‑XML‑211101’ released on 22 September 2021, and includes 1 November 2021 changes to the MBS General Medical Services Table, Diagnostic Imaging Services Table and the Pathology Services Table.

Further information on changes to the MBS for 1 November 2021, including fact sheets and quick reference guides is available at MBS Online.

PHI Spreadsheets reflect the assignment of MBS items by clinical category and procedure type set out in PHI rules, accessible on the Federal Register of Legislation.

We only update PHI Spreadsheets when MBS item changes result in changes to PHI clinical categorisations and procedure type classifications. Not all MBS XML Data File releases result in PHI Spreadsheet updates.

Receive notification of updates to PHI Spreadsheets, and other PHI information, by emailing requesting subscription to the email newsletter.
