The pioneering changes to MBS funding for eating disorder treatment have commenced, significantly improving access to treatment for the most severe and complex patients.

This webinar will provide clinicians with an overview of the MBS eating disorder pathway, patient eligibility, referral options and clinical management, with time for asking questions to our multidisciplinary panel. Procedural related questions may be referred to Medicare for a response.
