Indexation arrangements

Medicare Benefits Schedule and the Department of Veterans' Affairs

The Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) indexation measure announced by Government phases the reintroduction of indexation to the MBS and Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA).

Indexation has recommenced (or will recommence) in line with the MBS for related DVA services as follows:

  • 1 July 2017 for GP bulk billing incentives

  • 1 July 2018 for standard GP consultations (GP attendances in MBS group A1) and specialist attendances

  • 1 July 2019 for specialist procedures and optometry consultations

  • 1 July 2020 for targeted diagnostic imaging services, including computed tomography, mammography, fluoroscopy and interventional radiology

Fees for DVA dental and allied health services were indexed on 1 July 2018 (including visual aids schedule). Indexation for optometrist consultations will recommence on 1 July 2019. 

For a full list of MBS services to be indexed up until 1 July 2020 visit Factsheet — Medicare Indexation Schedule.

Review of DVA's Dental and Allied Health Arrangements

As part of the 2015–16 Budget, the Australian Government committed DVA to review its dental and allied health funding arrangements. The Review looked for opportunities, where appropriate, to re-balance DVA dental and allied health funding arrangements to ensure that services continue to best meet current and future needs of the veteran community. The Review was undertaken in consultation with representatives of the veteran community and peak provider associations. The Review informed the development of the 2018–19 Budget Measure Improved Dental and Allied Health (see Review of DVA Dental and Allied Health Arrangements – Final Report).
