MBS and telehealth
Removes some of the barriers to accessing medical services for Australians who have difficulty getting to a specialist or live in rural and remote areas.
Medicare benefits are available for video consultations between specialists and patients who are located in telehealth eligible areas. They are also available in eligible aged care facilities and Aboriginal Medical Services throughout Australia.
Medicare benefits are also available for clinical support provided by a health professional who is with the patient during the video consultation.
More information about Telehealth: Specialist video consultations under Medicare is at MBS Online on the Department of Health website.
