Mount Gambier MRI receives Medicare licence
1 May 2015
Following its recent approval to install an MRI scanner into the Mount Gambier Hospital, Benson Radiology has now also received a full Medicare licence from the Federal Government.
Today’s announcement means that all eligible scans will attract a Medicare rebate, from the first day of scanning on May 4, regardless of whether they are requested by a GP or Specialist.
The awarding of the licence comes as a result of continued and extensive lobbying from Benson Radiology, Federal member Tony Pasin, State member Troy Bell, and strong support from the local community and Country Health SA.
The licence is a major boost for local health services and aids the goal of making this technology more affordable and more accessible to the community.
