New Medicare Changes
On the 1st of May 2020, Medicare adjusted some of its requirements and conditions around medicare rebates for ultrasound examinations. Resulting in more convenient services for patients.
Due to the change in billing conditions, patients are now able to have certain scans performed at Blayney Ultrasound on the same day and have them both bulk billed.
Some of the common scans that can now be performed together include:
- Abdominal and Pelvic ultrasounds
- Vascular (Leg DVT or Arteries, Carotids) ultrasounds and most other ultrasounds excluding leg muscles or joints
Some limitations do still apply to which scans can be performed together so if you have multiple referrals – give our friendly staff a call and we can discuss the best booking options for you.
