Update: Change in pregnancy management invoicing timeframes
Garrison Health Services has made some changes to Obstetric Services item numbers as a result of a change in the MBS schedule.
12 June 2018
Item number 16590 – Pregnancy and management of a pregnancy where the doctor intends to attend the birth has been updated in the MBS schedule of fees. The item number has been amended so that it can only be claimed from 28 weeks gestation.
GHS has also made this adjustment in our Schedule of Fees. Accordingly, Providers are no longer able to invoice for a pregnancy management plan at 20 weeks, it will now be at 28 weeks.
