There are 24 new MBS telehealth items for blood borne viruses, sexual and reproductive health services

5 July 2021

The item numbers are available until 31 December 2021.

They’ll support patients to access medical services if they have barriers due to privacy or limited service availability.

If you’re a GP or OMP, you can use the items if you provide video or phone services related to:

  • blood borne viruses
  • sexual health
  • reproductive health.

You don’t need to have an existing relationship with the patient to provide these services.

You can continue to access existing COVID-19 telehealth services until 31 December 2021. Some telephone items have been streamlined.
