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.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
