The Department has identified that, due to an internal systems issue, details relating to the benefits applied to 35 Human Tissue billing codes are incorrect.

To correct these errors, the Private Health Insurance (Prostheses) Amendment Rules 2017 (No. 2) will commence on 28 March 2017.

The details of the corrections will be available on the Prostheses webpage, in order for hospitals and insurers to complete their own systems updates prior to the benefits coming into effect.

Any queries regarding this matter should be emailed to Prostheses Section or to the Prostheses Hotline on (02) 6289 9463.
