Medicare Safety Net Arrangements for New Obstetric Services

22 September 2017

The Government recently announced changes to Medicare Benefit Schedule (MBS) Obstetric services to improve the care and mental health screening for women during pregnancy and the postnatal period. The changes are a result of recommendations from the MBS Review Taskforce’s review of obstetrics services and are due to come into effect from 1 November 2017.  The changes amend a number of MBS obstetric items and introduce six new obstetric MBS items. The new obstetric items will be capped under the Extended Medicare Safety Net (EMSN) to align with current capping arrangements for existing obstetric items.
 
Further information on the EMSN capping arrangements for obstetric services can be found on MBS Online:
