MBS-funded telehealth extended to end of 2021

The federal government has agreed to extend MBS-funded telehealth services until the end of the year, putting aside $114 million as part of the upcoming budget.

The item numbers have been extended several times since first announced in March 2020 to help tackle the COVID-19 pandemic, and the government is promising to work with peak bodies to co-design permanent post pandemic telehealth programs.
