Advocacy win for private practice billing

16 Sep 2021



The Australian Salaried Medical Officers' Federation Queensland (ASMOFQ) and AMA Queensland have been working hard to find a solution for medical imaging specialists on the retention contract, who are affected by the changes in private practice billing from 1 July 2021.

ASMOFQ raised this issue several months ago with the Health Minister and also in detailed discussions with the Director-General in August.

As a direct result of our advocacy, Queensland Health has circulated a proposal to affected specialists for their feedback, outlining an interim billing process while a permanent resolution is developed over the coming months.

This proposal was due to ASMOFQ’s hard work and expertise as an industrial relations organisation representing doctors and fighting for your rights.

We have received constructive feedback on the proposal from members and have provided this to Queensland Health and will continue to work towards a satisfactory resolution for members.
