About the MBS Review

The Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) Review Taskforce is considering how more than 5,700 items on the MBS can be aligned with contemporary clinical evidence and practice and improve health outcomes for patients.

The Review is led by a Taskforce, which includes doctors working across public and private health sectors with expertise in general practice, surgery, pathology, radiology, public health and medical administration. Consumer representatives and academics with expertise in health technology assessment are also represented on the Taskforce.
