Feds extend MBS items for telehealth until June 30

The federal government has extended support for telehealth on the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) for a further three months.

As part of a $1.1 billion package of extended measures announced yesterday, the government says it will continue to subsidise telehealth services and care until June 30. The temporary measures were due to expire on March 31.

This means we will only have MBS for Telehealth consultation for whole of population until June 30. After then we will be back to fighting for funding. Or am I confused?
