Status of the HBF List
On 1 October 2023, the HBF List was removed. We have set a scheduled fee for all items currently on the HBF List and your agreement type will determine whether you are able to opt in or out for services previously on the HBF List.
Full Cover Agreement: Providers who remain on a Full Cover Agreement will be required to charge fees equal to the Full Cover Schedule for all items (including items currently listed on the HBF List). This includes any associated anaesthetic services against those item numbers.
Provider Choice Agreement: Specialists on the Provider Choice Agreement or who choose to switch to it will have the ability to opt in or out of these services.
We encourage you to read the Medical Gap Agreement Terms and Conditions, which can be found here.
