Indigenous health assessment: A health assessment specifically available to all people of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent which can be used for health assessments across the age spectrum. The health assessment includes the assessment of a patient's physical health, and psychological and social well-being. It also assesses whether preventive health care and education should be offered to the patient, to improve that patient's health and well-being. It includes MBS-rebated Indigenous health assessments (MBS items: 715; 228; 92004; 92016; 92011; or 92023).
For ages 0–14: an Indigenous health assessment is counted if it was completed within the previous 12 months.
