The Department of Health and Aged Care (the Department) review of clients who receive a monthly benefit payment under the Inborn Errors of Metabolism (IEM) program has begun. If you have received a letter from the Department advising that you have an overdue reapplication you must act now. The IEM programme office are happy to take calls from anyone who had received a letter to explain to them what is required or you may direct any enquiries to MDDA. It is a requirement of the IEM program that clients with dihydropteridine reductase, hyperphenylalaninemia or phenylketonuria are reassessed by their metabolic specialist and submit a reapplication form (Form A) every 12 months. Your monthly benefit payments may be suspended if the Department does not receive your reapplication form every year. The reapplication form (Form A) can be found on the Department’s website at https://www.health.gov.au/initiatives-and-programs/inborn-errors-of-metabolism-program. MDDA are planning an information webinar later in March with the Department for IEM grant recipients providing an opportunity to hear directly from the Department.
