Uterine Artery Embolisation - (Item 35410)

This item was introduced on an interim basis in November 2006 following a recommendation of the Medical Services Advisory Committee (MSAC), pending the outcome of clinical trials and further consideration by the MSAC. The requirement for specialist referral by a gynaecologist for uterine artery embolisation was a MSAC recommendation. Providers should retain the instrument of specialist referral for each patient from the date of the procedure, as this may be subject to audit by the Department of Human Services.
