New education guide for surgeons and anaesthetists

16 November 2018

We have a new education guide about billing abandoned or discontinued surgery MBS items.

The new billing abandoned or discontinued surgery education guide gives an overview of:

  • billing abandoned or discontinued surgical procedures
  • assistance at surgery
  • anaesthesia.

We’ve detailed how the MBS defines abandoned surgery and information about surgical, assistance and anaesthetic items.

We’ve included scenarios using MBS items and item notes.

The guide is now available for reference when you're billing MBS items for abandoned or discontinued surgery.

We also have a range of other education guides and eLearning programs about billing MBS items.
