Help when claiming MBS items for children with disabilities

The education guide for the Better Start for Children with Disability initiative has been updated to make claiming easier.

The education guide outlines Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) items available under the initiative for the early diagnosis and treatment of eligible children with a disability.

It now includes a diagram with MBS items you can claim, and the requirements for referrals, treatment, management plans and reporting.

The guide adds to other Medicare Benefits Schedule education for health professionals resources to help you understand claiming requirements.
