Changes to Telehealth Bulk Billing Arrangements from 01 October 2020

From the 01 October 2020, amendments to telehealth and phone consultation bulk billing arrangements include the removal of the requirement to bulk-bill attendances for certain patients and an end to the temporary doubling of the schedule fees for bulk-billing incentive items. The schedule fees ($12.95 in metro and $19.60 in rural locations) will revert to the normal rate ($6.50 or $9.80 respectively) with GPs able to charge their usual fees for the items.

More information regarding the changes to the MBS that come into effect on 01 October is available at MBS Online, and fact sheets covering the COVID-19 temporary MBS Telehealth Services are available here.
