Consultations now available via Telehealth
Telehealth item numbers have now been made available for Podiatry. These item numbers are specifically for the treatment of chronic disease and therefore can only be utilised for patients who are on a Chronic Disease Management plan (Enhanced Primary Care Programme). Any clinical services claimed via telehealth is bulk billed. If you are unsure if you have a current Chronic Disease Management plan or if you are eligible for one please contact the clinic on 02 60 565 188 or call your GP.
On April 1st, The Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) issued advice for all DVA clients that they now have access to allied health services via telehealth, where clinically necessary.
Further direction from TAC, Worksafe (NSW and VIC) and Private Health funds on their position on telehealth rebates for podiatry will be delivered in the future. We do offer private fee paying telehealth consultation however you will not be able to seek a rebate at this stage.
