Prostheses Amendment Rules - Correction to PHI 35/14 Changes to CAG Meeting Dates

Prostheses Amendment Rules

The Private Health Insurance (Prostheses) Amendment Rules 2014 No. 2 (the Amendment Rules) were registered on the Federal Register of Legislative Instruments on 18 June 2014.

Private Health Insurance Circular PHI 35/14 provided details of the amendments to the Prostheses List contained in the Amendment Rules.

The Amendment Rules commence on 27 June 2014.

Correction to PHI 35/14

In the table of increased benefits for human tissue implants supplied by NSW Bone Bank, the new benefit for NBB06 is shown as “$3193.00”. The new benefit should read “$3913.00”. This error is only in the circular. The benefit amount is correct in the amendment rules.
