Patients aged 40–49 years (inclusive), or 15-54 years (inclusive) for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, with a 'high' score result from the AUSDRISK tool are eligible to attend a type 2 diabetes risk evaluation by their GP. For further information, refer to the MBS health assessment for people aged 40-49 years with a high risk of developing type 2 diabetes and Medicare health assessment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
