The Chronic Disease Management Medicare items on the Medicare Benefits Schedule enable GPs to plan and coordinate the health care of patients with chronic or terminal medical conditions. This item is designed for patients who require a structured approach to their care. To be eligible for a GP Management Plan (GPMP) a patient must have a chronic (or terminal) medical condition; one that has been or is likely to be present for 6 months or longer, including, but not limited to asthma, cancer, cardiovascular illness, diabetes mellitus and musculoskeletal conditions (DoH 2014a).

A GPMP is required by legislation to be a comprehensive written plan that describes:

  • the patient’s health care needs, health problems and relevant conditions
  • management goals with which the patient agrees
  • actions to be taken by the patient
  • treatment and services the patient is likely to need
  • arrangements for providing these treatment and services
  • a date to review these matters (DoH 2014b).

This chronic disease management service is for a patient who has at least one medical condition that:

(a)    has been (or is likely to be) present for at least six months; or

(b)    is terminal (DoH 2011).
