What does a telehealth appointment cost?

During the COVID-19 crisis, the Australian Government has extended Medicare numbers for telehealth appointments so that anyone with a Medicare card can get a Medicare rebate.


If you are having your treatment in the public health system, using telehealth for your usual hospital-based appointments is free.


If you are having your treatment as a private patient, you can ask if your telehealth appointments can be bulk-billed. Medicare rebates are now also available for telehealth appointments with GPs. You can ask your GP is they are able to bulk-bill you.
