Residential Aged Care Facility MBS Quick Reference Guide

On the 10th December 2020, the government unveiled a collection of new items for Residential Aged Care Facilities. This includes expanding Better Access, Chronic Disease Management and Indigenous Australian Residents items for aged care residents.

AAPi has prepared a quick reference guide which can be accessed here.

For those who will be using these item numbers we do recommend you lookup each item number on MBS Online prior to using, in order to understand the full eligibility conditions and requirements.

Each scheme has its own reporting requirements and obligations. Of particular importance is the requirement for reporting after the initial session for Chronic Disease and Indigenous items, as well as upon completion of the treatment block. These items are considered team care items and require frequent communication with the referrer.
