February 27, 2019

Changes to Medicare items related to Residential Aged Care Facility visits will be effective from 1 March.

 

THE CHANGES 

 

1. New flagfall item numbers to cover travel time and costs (claim once per visit) - 90001 $50 (GP) and 90002 $40 (Other practitioners)

 

2. Common visit attendance items are no longer available (20, 35, 43, 51, 92, 93, 95, 96, 183, 188, 202 and 212)

 

3. New attendance items claimed for each patient attended (90020 90035 90043 90051 90092 90093 90095 90096 90183 90188 90202 90212). Note the similarity of item numbers with old numbers. The requirements are unchanged, but the fee is now a flat fee rather than determined by the number of patients attended.
