Prostheses List

(Question No. 1002)


Mr Alexander asked the Minister for Health, in writing, on 8 May 2012:

In respect of coronary pressure wires and the Commonwealth Prostheses List (CPL), (a) why are they not included on the CPL, and (b) will she consider adding them to the CPL; if so, can she provide a schedule for when they will be added, and if not, why not.


Ms Plibersek: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

Coronary pressure wires are not included on the Prostheses List because they do not satisfy the criteria for listing. The criteria for listing medical devices on the Prostheses List are in the Prostheses List Guide, which is available at:
