The MBS Review Taskforce has released its first list of potentially defunct MBS items for further consultation.
The 23 items announced by Health Minister Sussan Ley include seven in diagnostic imaging, nine in ENT surgery, five in gastroenterology and one in both obstetrics and thoracic medicine.
Items included in the first tranch are from six clinical expert working groups; however it is expected that around 80 working groups will form over the two year period.
The consultation is open until 8 February. For more information on the items and consultation click here.
