Medicare Rebate for QAAMS Testing
The July 1 2013 issue of the Medicare Benefits Schedule booklet incorrectly states that the item numbers for QAAMS testing have been deleted. Please note that this is an error and Item Numbers: 73840 (HbA1c) and 73844 (urine ACR) are still available. The Medicare Rebate available for Item 73840 is $14.45 and the rebate for Item 73844 is $17.30.

New HbA1c Units
From July 2013 reporting units for HbA1c are changing from % to mmol/mol.
