ReturntoWorkSA (RTWSA) has provided the AMA(SA) with its Consultation Paper relating to fees proposed in its Provider Fee Review.
As one of the specified stakeholders to which the Return to Work Act 2014 (the Act) requires ReturnToWorkSA to consult, the AMA(SA) has been asked to provide feedback on the Consultation Paper and the proposed fees by Wednesday, 10 March 2021.
This feedback will be considered by the ReturnToWorkSA Board before the final fee schedule is published.
This is an important issue that affects many of our members, so I am asking you to consider providing input into the AMA(SA) response to the Consultation Paper.
The opportunity to respond to this Consultation Paper is one of the few ways for medical practitioners to potentially influence the final fee schedule.
Of particular note is the proposed change to Specialist Practitioner Attendance Fees (Schedule 1A) which will result in a 20% increase over two years .
To view the Consultation Paper, please go to the AMA(SA) website, where members can log in and read the RTWSA paper.
If you have feedback you wish to be reflected in the AMA(SA) response, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org by COB Wednesday, 10 March 2021.
