AN.0.11

Derived fee items for general practice

Last reviewed: 1 November 2023

Derived fees apply to a range of attendance items that are used when services are provided outside of consulting rooms, including some MBS items used in residential aged care facilities.

An item is a derived fee item if the MBS benefit payable depends on the number of patients that are seen at the location. Not all out of consulting rooms items are derived fee items. Some out of consulting rooms items attract a flag fall, instead of using a derived fee. See AN.35.1, AN.35.2 and AN.44.1 for further information on flag falls.

To facilitate assessment of the correct Medicare rebate in respect of a number of patients attended on the one occasion at one location, it is important that the total number of patients seen be recorded on each individual account, receipt or assignment form. For example, where ten patients were visited (for a brief consultation) in the one facility on the one occasion, each account, receipt or assignment form would show "Item 4 - 1 of 10 patients" for a general practitioner. 

The number of patients seen should not include attendances which do not attract a Medicare rebate (e.g. public in-patients, attendances for normal after-care), or where a Medicare rebate is payable under an item other than these derived fee items (e.g. health assessments, care planning, emergency after-hours attendance - first patient).
