Bulk Billing in General Practice – from 1 November 2023

From 1 November 2023, thirteen new higher bulk billing incentive items are being introduced for Commonwealth concession card holders and patients aged under 16 years of age.

The new items are 75870, 75871, 75872, 75873, 75874, 75875 and 75876 (new general support service bulk billing items) and 75880, 75881, 75882, 75883, 75884 and 75885 (for patients enrolled in MyMedicare).

These new items will support younger Australians and concessional patients to access general practice services, targeting investment in primary care to those who most need it.

Further information and resources are available at MBS Online and they include:
