People in telehealth eligible areas of Australia have access to specialist video consultations under Medicare. This provides many patients with easier access to specialists, without the time and expense involved in travelling to major cities.
We provide telehealth video consultation in Psychiatry, Neurology & Psychology.
Everyone is eligible; however, Medicare claims are only possible if you:
live outside a major city and are more than 15 km from the specialist
are not currently in the hospital.
People living in residential aged care facilities or receiving Aboriginal medical services anywhere in Australia are not affected by these restrictions.
A video consultation will only be offered if the specialist and GP consider it safe and suitable.
