PLEASE NOTE: This is a NEW Summary of Changes from the version previously uploaded.
The reason for this update is the changes to the spinal items are not straight forward. It is clear the MBS Review team had given considered thought to amalgamating, deleting, streamlining and creating new items. They have also employed a detailed process for generating new fees across the new items, with consideration to fee relativity compared to the old item structure, and the impact of the multiple services rule. The AMA has since last week discussed the changes with those involved in the MBS Review, and has chosen to employ the MBS Review’s methodology on the AMA Fees List, when generating new AMA items and associated fees. The new AMA Fees now reflect this methodology for the spinal items. We thank you for your patience while this work was carried out. We’d like to also thank the Spine Society for all their assistance.
At this time the update is available in PDF (as a summary of the changes). A CSV file will follow once all the 1 November changes have been completed.
