Check out the Determination for Medicare Provider Numbers
Please have a look at the Health Insurance (Midwife and Nurse Practitioner)Determination 2010Health Insurance Act 1973
I, NICOLA ROXON, Minister for Health and Ageing, make this Determination under
section 3C of the Health Insurance Act 1973.
Dated 4 October 2010
This determination comes into force 1 November; Midwifery services and fees range from $31.10 - $724.00 and providing a service fee for 6 weeks postnatal period...
We have to remember that this does not cover homebirth and we need to continue to put pressure on the government to pass this midwifery services fee onto women who choose to have a homebirth.....
