Govt delays voluntary patient enrolment scheme due to COVID-19

The Australian Department of Health has decided to delay the $448.5 million voluntary patient enrolment (VPE) scheme that was due to start last week due to the COVID-19 pandemic response.

The initiative was aimed at patients aged over 70 and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 50 years and over and was expected to herald a universal telehealth scheme to better support flexible access for enrolled patients.
