Structure, organisations and key people
The PSTC advises the Government on the composition of the Pathology Services Table (PST). The key responsibility of PSTC is to review the PST to ensure that the services, fees and conditions for use are current and appropriate. PSTC is primarily an advisory committee as they recommend to the Minister changes to the Pathology Services Table of the Medical Benefits Schedule. It is NOT Ministerially appointed and the membership is not contained in legislation.
PSTC Meetings are held 4 times a year to coincide with the cut-off times for changes to the Medicare Benefits Schedule in May and November of each year. The meetings are held in Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra.
