Preparing a GP eating disorder treatment and management plan

An eating disorder treatment and management plan (EDP) is required for eligible patients under the new Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) for eating disorders. GPs are required to develop the EDP with their patients following a comprehensive physical and mental assessment. Visit MBS online for more information on MBS item numbers 90250, 90251, 90252 and 90253, including explanatory notes on preparing an EDP.

The National Eating Disorders Collaboration (NEDC) has developed a range of fact sheets and resources to help GPs assess, treat and refer patients with an eating disorder. Visit the NEDC website for more information, including an EDP template.
