WorkCover Queensland has reviewed and updated the table of costs for medical treatment applicable for workers' compensation in Queensland. The changes are effective 1 December 2020.
The Medical Benefits Schedule (MBS) item numbers, explanations, definitions, rules and conditions for services provided by medical practitioners have been adopted and fees have been indexed in line with CPI and wage index increases.
The updated medical fees including supplementary services provided by general practitioners and specialists are available on our new website under Service Providers > Fees.
This section of the website also includes the updated fees for self-insurers.
Multiple operation rule
If two or more operations, other than amputations, are being performed on a patient on the one occasion, the multiple operation rule will apply in determining fees.
More information is available on the multiple operation rule including how it is applied.

The table of costs are updated regularly throughout the year. Register for our fees updates and you will be notified via email when fees are changed or updated.
