To the Editor: I read with interest the article by Byles and colleagues that shows the minimal impact of health assessments in a section of the older Australian community.1 While these assessments may not be identical to the assessments covered by Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) items on the Medicare Benefits Schedule, my experience performing the latter in older people leads me to believe that they also have limited impact.
