Review of the Medicare Benefits Schedule

In 2015, the Australian Government announced a comprehensive review of the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS).

To prepare for the review, we convened an MBS Review Advisory Group to support the development of our recommendations on how the MBS should be amended to best meet the eye health needs of all Australians.

The Advisory Group met for the first time in May 2018, and further information will be shared with you as it becomes available.

To get involved contact our Member Support and Optometry Advancement team via email policy@optometry.org.au.
