New patient assessment for a COVID-19 vaccine

On 18 June, the Australian Government announced two new Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) items (10660 and 10661). These two new items will support general practitioners and other medical practitioners to provide in-depth clinical assessments for patients over 50 years old. This assessment will look at the patient’s health risks and the benefits of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. The assessment is also available to people with disability.

Find out more about the in-depth patient assessment items.
