Subject: MRI Announcement
Dear Network Members,
Please see an important announcement below from PCFA and feel free to share with your own networks.
Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia welcomes Medicare rebate for prostate cancer MRI
As part of the 2018 Federal Budget, the new $400 Medicare Rebate will be made available for scans to diagnose and monitor prostate cancer. This is a positive outcome in improving healthcare access for those at risk or living with prostate cancer.
Three members of the Network had originally provided feedback in relation to this, demonstrating the importance of the consumer voice and the collaborative approach PCFA values greatly. PCFA would like to thank everyone involved in this process for their support. We look forward to continuing to work with you all into the future.
My best wishes,
