Event Details

*** New Curriculum ***

MBS workshops provide participants with NEW pre and post workshops quizzes and education, MBS handbook for general practice and face-to-face question time for Practice Managers, Practice Owners & General Practitioners. 

Our sessions will help you create 40 new short cuts for your accurate and MBS compliant documentation: We supply you with the framework and templates to create your individualised shortcuts. 

Documentation 'If it wasn't documented it didn't happen' - MBS compliance requires medical notes to be written at the time of consultation and to comply with the MBS requirements for the item number billed. We provide you with an easy to follow framework for documentation and billing, as well as shortcuts to save time

Explaining the Medicare Benefits Schedule - Categories and Explanatory Notes 
Understanding the layout of the MBS and how it relates to your practice and billings will give you a good start to legal and ethical billing. You will be provided with a specially produced MBS book that will have sections only relevant to general practice and separation of consultations and procedures. 

Next is the top 100 - These are the 100 item numbers you need MUST know - just less than 1/3 of the GP item numbers but a good start compared to the 30 item numbers commonly billed. 

Finally, the famous combination billing program
The revolution of General Practice with the realisation that combination billing was legal AND ethical, giving the Doctor more time to spend with their patients and provide excellent care. We teach you the rules of combination billing and for those who have been to our workshops previously, this will be a great revision session to enable you to further evolve your billing practices
