Additionally, MBS rebate item 42705 for eligible patients undergoing minimally invasive glaucoma (MIGS) in conjunction with cataract surgery has been increased, and a new MBS item, 42505, will be listed, providing a rebate for patients who require removal or replacement of MIGS devices due to device related complications.
