MBS Items for Blood Borne Virus, Sexual and Reproductive Health Services

The video and phone items for the provision of services related to blood borne viruses, sexual or reproductive health provides for Medicare benefits to be paid for these health care services without the requirement for the patient to have an established clinical relationship with the physician. This does not exclude practitioners who have an established clinical relationship with the patient from using these items.

These items are intended to support patient access to medical services where there may be barriers due to privacy or limited service provision, and are not intended to replace routine services that a patient’s usual practitioner might provide.

The practitioner must keep adequate and contemporary notes to support the service provided.

There are 24 MBS items for the provision of video or phone services related to blood borne viruses, sexual or reproductive health.
