AMA lobbying for further extension to temporary telehealth items

The Australian Medical Association (AMA) is lobbying the federal government for an extension to the temporary MBS items for telehealth in the short term, with the item numbers due to expire on March 31.

The federal government has promised that telehealth will be a permanent feature of Medicare in the long term but the AMA says it is concerned that general practices and patients can’t plan consultations beyond the end of the month, despite the ongoing pandemic.
