MRI is a sophisticated and expensive technology. In order for an MRI service to receive a Medicare rebate, the scan must be requested by a specialist medical practitioner or consultant physician, be conducted on a Medicare-eligible MRI unit by a Medicare-eligible provider, and be an MRI service listed in the MBS.
DVA makes payments in accordance with the Medicare Benefits Schedule; therefore, we cannot reimburse the cost of scans performed on non-eligible MRI machines. If you have been referred to an MRI centre which is not eligible for Medicare benefits, you may wish to ask your medical practitioner to refer you to an eligible centre.
