Under the Health Insurance (General Medical Services Table) Regulations, items 32500 to 32517 and 35321 do not apply to services mentioned in those items if the services are delivered by:

  1. endovenous laser treatment (ELT); or
  2. radiofrequency diathermy; or
  3. radiofrequency ablation for varicose veins.

It is recommended that a practitioner who intends to bill ELT, radiofrequency diathermy or radiofrequency ablation for varicose veins on the same occasion as providing items 32500 to 32517 or 35321 contact the Services Australia provider information line on 132 150 to confirm requirements for correct itemisation of services on a single invoice.

The Department of Health monitors billing practices associated with MBS items. Services for ELT, radiofrequency diathermy or radiofrequency ablation for varicose veins provided on the same occasion as items 32500 to 32517 or 35321 must be itemised separately on the invoice, showing the full fees for each service separately to the fees billed against these MBS items.
