Event description

Description

MBS workshop -
Join us at the MBS workshop right before the RMA national conference- and receive your up to date MBS GP specific printed book to help you better understand General Practice. This contains all those rural procedural item numbers used by GPs as well.

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.

General Attendance Item numbers -
Suitable for both VR and Non-VR Doctors. We work through the common billing mistakes and how to avoid them

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.

Procedural Item Numbers

Skin, fractures, suturing and more - we take you through step by step instructions for billing item numbers, documentation and normal aftercare restrictions.

Medicare Audit
Step by step details on the Medicare Audit process and how you can avoid stress by working with your MDO to provide the information required to Medicare.

Health Assessment and Care Plans
As the two most audited item numbers these templates and documentation need to be perfected for each item number billed. Understanding the restrictions on co-billing and the allowable co-billing item numbers will assist you with improved billing and rebates for patients. Patient eligibility, goal setting and reviews are also explained.

Mental Health - Care plans, consultations and telehealth
Carefully produced Mental health care plans can be beneficial to both the clinician and the patient. Working within the MBS criteria and maximising the time with patients by utilising all the eligible MBS item numbers will allow the practitioner to provide better health care.
