HCF Fee update effective December 2016

Previous topic Next topic  

HCF gapcover fees were updated in December 2016. However, the December fees were not added to Access Anaesthetics until March 10, 2017.

 

This table lists the changes in gapcover fees between November 2016 and December 2016. If you have used these items for procedures performed between 1 December and 10 March, you will have selected the lower, November fee, where the higher December fee may have been payable.

 

Anaesthetic items are not affected, as the December fees are the same as the November fees.

 

Nothing needs to be done about these differences. It just means that if you used an HCF gapcover fee for any of these items in Dec-Feb, you may have received a slightly lower benefit than was available at the time.
