The Chronic Disease Management Medicare items on the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) (DoH 2011) enable GPs to plan and coordinate the health care of patients with chronic or terminal medical conditions, including patients with these conditions who require multidisciplinary, team-based care from a GP and at least two other health or care providers. The items are designed for patients who require a structured approach to their care. A ‘chronic medical condition’ is one that has been or is likely to be present for at least six months, including but not limited to asthma, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus and musculoskeletal conditions (DoH 2014a).

Team Care Arrangements (TCAs) are required by legislation to include a document that describes:

  • treatment and service goals for the patient
  • treatment and services that collaborating providers will provide to the patient
  • actions to be taken by the patient
  • a date to review these matters (DoH 2014b).

This chronic disease management service is for a patient who:

(a)    has at least one medical condition that:

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

ii.    is terminal; and

(b)    requires ongoing care from at least three collaborating health or care providers, each of whom provides a different kind of treatment or service to the patient, and at least one of whom is a medical practitioner (DoH 2011).
