GPs can now claim the Veterans Access Payment with the Annual Veterans’ Health Check

July 06, 2022

From 1 July 2022, the Veterans’ Access Payment (VAP), payable based on Modified Monash Model classifications (MM1–MM7), can be claimed with the Annual Veterans’ Health Check items MT701, MT703, MT705 and MT707.

This change represents an overall increase in the amount claimable for delivering an Annual Veterans’ Health Check and aligns the fees with the equivalent Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) health assessment items for GPs. If you are unsure which VAP incentive to claim, please visit the Incentive payments for General Practitioners page.
