Telehealth extension until the end of 2021
Over the last 12 months, Telehealth services have been life changing for many in need of support, which is why as part of the 2021-22 Budget, the Australian Government is investing more than $114 million to extend Telehealth until the end of the year.
The Federal Government has confirmed GPs will be able to offer Medicare subsidised telehealth consultations until 31 December 2021. The current arrangements were due to end on 30 June.
