Advocacy Reports and submissions 2019 reports and submissions Submission to the MBS Review – Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health

Summary

Date: 24 May 2019

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Reference Group was established in 2018 to make recommendations to the MBS Review Taskforce on MBS items relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health.

The RACGP is broadly supportive of the report’s recommendations, which will lead to evidence-based, culturally safe, coordinated care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Some of the RACGP’s previous recommendations to the Reference Group have not been incorporated, and some recommendations require further amendments. These are outlined in our commentary on individual recommendations in the submission.
