The MBS Eligibility tab is available when the clinical and billing systems are provided by the same vendor and the data extract for the clinical system is version 1_5 or above. The 'Pen CS CAT4 - User Guide Part 1 – Installation and Configuration' explains how to configure your preferences to collect billing data as well as clinical data. This report is visible in the 'Daily', 'CDM' and 'I-qi' view as well as in the CAT4 full view.
For the details of the MBS item numbers used in this report please see the table above in the MBS item report paragraph.
Note: Diabetes SIP tab is removed from this report, due to removal of relevant MBS items from Medicare in 2022.
