Changes to Medicare funded dermatology services
These changes stem from recommendations put forward in the MBS Review Taskforce’s Dermatology, Allergy and Immunology Clinical Committee (DAICC) report, released for public consultation in May 2017. College sought the views of Fellows on these recommendations through a survey announced in the weekly newsletter and the website during May and June 2017. College thanks all Fellows for their contribution to College’s submission to the Taskforce.
The College also thanks Associate Professor Stephen Shumack (Chair), Dr Elizabeth Willsteed, Dr Phillip Bekhor and Dr Shawn Richards for their work on the DAICC Committee and working groups.
Specific information about these changes will be advised by the Department closer to the implementation date of 1 November 2018.
