Improving access to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Services – NEW GP MRI ITEM NUMBERS

The Australian Government has initiated the Diagnostic Imaging Reform Package to help ensure ongoing, affordable and convenient diagnostic imaging services for patients, with a key focus on the staged expansion of patient access to Medicare-eligible MRI services.

The Package includes increased access to MRI services for primary care patients by extending requesting rights to GPs for all patients under 16 years for a small set of clinically appropriate indications from 1 November 2012.

We are pleased to inform you that as of  1st November 2012, Norwest will BULK BILL all GP referred MRI for children under the age of 16 years.

Please be advised that this is only available at our Norwest and Auburn practices.

To find out which GP referred MRI items are bulk billed, please visit our Referrers page for more information.
