Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) item 715 is an annual health check for Indigenous people of all ages.

This tool is an online dynamic data display that highlights and promotes uptake of MBS item 715. It shows usage rates and the proportion and number of Indigenous people having the check. It enables comparisons of both rates and numbers over time and across different Medicare locals, peer groups, states and territories.

The tool may be useful for policy makers, researchers, analysts, health services planning staff and clinicians.
