On 29 March 2020, the Minister for Health, Greg Hunt announced the expansion of telehealth to allied health practitioners, during COVID-19.
Commencing on Monday 30 March 2020 at 8am, Australians will be able to access their allied health practitioner for bulk billed Medicare services, through telehealth (video-conference) and phone consultations. These new arrangements will be in place until 30 September 2020, before undergoing review.
You do not need a new referral if the client has sessions remaining in their plan.
