Budget to deliver Medicare rebate for video consults with psychologists

The federal government will introduce a new Medicare rebate for people living in rural and remote areas that will allow the bulk of the psychological sessions subsidised under the Better Access program to be conducted by telehealth.

Set to cost $9 million over four years, the initiative will begin on November 1 and will be available for patients living in Modified Monash Model regions four to seven, which cover smaller country towns and remote and very remote locations.
