Maternity Services by Participating Midwives - Overview

As at 1 November 2010, Medicare benefits are payable for antenatal, intrapartum and postnatal care for the first 6 weeks after the delivery, provided by eligible privately practising midwives. Eligible midwives can also request certain pathology and diagnostic imaging services for their patients and refer patients to obstetricians and paediatricians, as the clinical need arises. Each service that attracts a Medicare benefit is identified in the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) by an item number.  Each item describes the service that the item covers.
