Update on Telehealth July 2022

As of the start of July 2022, the Federal Government is no longer Medicare reimbursing telephone consultations. Telehealth (TH)(i.e. video) consultations are still reimbursed. In my view medical care is more effective face to face. It removes distractions and allows me a better chance to assess your health.

However, I may on occasion feel a TH appointment is reasonable or appropriate, maybe for geographical reasons, physical frailty , or because a recent physical examination was completed. By all means discuss with me if you feel TH is reasonable for your next appointment.

Note TH is charged the same amount as a F2F consultation. As mentioned in previous blogs, if anything they generate more work for our team.

Stay well Shane
