How you and Medicare can best support children with disabilities

5 October 2017

We’ve produced an education guide about the Better Start for Children with Disability initiative.

The guide helps you identify MBS items for the early diagnosis and treatment of children with an eligible disability.

You can use the guide to check:

  • the disability eligibility criteria
  • your claiming requirements
  • treatment and management plan needs, and
  • referral and reporting rules

Use this guide with other Medicare Benefits Schedule education for health professionals resources.
