Doctors’ groups lobby for yet another extension to MBS telehealth changes

The Australian Medical Association is calling on the new government to extend the existing MBS-funded telehealth rules beyond their expiry date of June 30, asking that the current arrangements continue to December 31 just like other COVID-19 measures.

The former Coalition government had planned to cut certain MBS items for telehealth, including some for long phone consultations and some non-GP specialist items, from July 1.
