The Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) is a Department of Health publication that lists services that are subsidised by the Australian Government under Medicare. You can use MBS Online to check if a service is listed under Medicare.
Medicare usually covers: 1. Free or subsidised treatment by health professionals such as doctors, specialists, optometrists and in specific circumstances dentists and other allied health practitioners. 2. free treatment and accommodation as a public Medicare patient in a public hospital. 3. 75% of the Medicare Schedule fee for services and procedures if you are a private patient in a public or private hospital. This does not include hospital accommodation and items such as theatre fees and medicines
some health care services in certain countries.
