From 1 November 2017, there are new limits for some consultation items done by specialists and consultant physicians.

Specialists and consultant physicians can’t claim MBS benefits for subsequent attendance items 105, 116, 119, 386, 2806, 2814, 3010, 3014, 6019, 6052, and 16404 if they’re claiming any Group T8 items with a schedule fee of $300 or more on the same day. The Group T8 items are those numbered 30001 to 50952.

There are 3 new subsequent attendance items.

You can claim these on the same day as Group T8 items with a schedule fee of $300 or more if the procedure is urgent and can’t be predicted before the attendance started.
