Description: 

The ‘Private Health Insurance classification of MBS items 11 April 2022’ is derived from the MBS XML Data file ‘MBS-XML-220401’ released on 31 March 2022 and ‘MBS‑XML‑22011’ released on 7 April 2022.

The 31 March 2022 XML incorporates the 1 April 2022 changes, which includes one new item for Nuclear Medicine Services, two new items for BRCA1 and BRCA2 somatic or germline testing and a fee reduction for item 91792, which aligns the fee with the 1 March 2022 benefit changes to telehealth items.

The XML file released on 7 April 2022 incorporates the 11 April 2022 changes, which includes update to six items for pain management services (39110, 39111, 39116, 39117, 39118 and 39119).

Further information on changes to the MBS 1 April 2022 and 11 April 2022, 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 PHI [at] health.gov.au requesting subscription to the email newsletter.
