Streamlining First Nations Australians’ access to allied health services

This page provides information on changes to Medicare Benefit Schedule (MBS) allied health services for First Nations Australians from 1 March 2024.

Page last updated: 16 February 2024

From 1 March 2024, First Nations Australians only need to have either a chronic disease management (CDM) plan (GP Management Plan and Team Care Arrangements) or a health assessment to access up to 10 allied health services per calendar year. There will be no requirement to have both services.

This change is a result of a review by the MBS Review Taskforce (Taskforce), which was informed by the Allied Health Reference Group.
