After-hours healthcare changes included in Bp Data Update

Bp Premier users will see an easy transition to the new after-hours healthcare guidelines with the changes included in the latest March Data Update.

As of 1st March 2018, the Federal Government made changes to Medicare rebates introducing differential rebates for doctors providing urgent after hours care who are vocationally registered and on a pathway of Fellowship.

Announced by the Federal Minister for Health in December 2017, the changes are designed to better reflect the level of doctors’ qualification and patients will therefore receive more financial support for after-hours visits provided by qualified doctors.
