Changes to medical fees for 1 December 2017
WorkCover Queensland has reviewed and updated the medical fees applicable for workers’ compensation in Queensland. This will affect the medical schedule of fees and supplementary table of costs for GPs and specialists.
The majority of fees have increased to align with the current Australian Medical Association (AMA) List of Medical Services and Fees and the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS). The new fees will apply from 1 December 2017.
The following new item codes have also been added to the Specialist Supplementary Table of Costs:
100818 - ILO report (Received by insurer within 10 working days) - $133
100819 - ILO report (Received by insurer after 10 working days) - $66
- Chest x-ray review and associated ILO report.
- Performed in accordance with ILO Classification Guidelines by a single qualified (NIOSH accredited) B-reader
