“Since early August, a fake letter has been circulated to GPs in NSW and Queensland asking them to review their practices for over-servicing. At least 25 general practitioners have received the letters, supposedly from the Department of Human Services and Medical Board of Australia, warning that they are reaching the limit for the number of consultations charged to Medicare. It is similar to genuine letters sent out by the department to GPs who are approaching 80 or more professional attendances on 20 or more days in a 12-month period.”
