Telehealth Psychology Sessions extended

The federal government has announced another extension to the national COVID-19 health response. As part of this announcement, the Government has indicated it will extend the Medicare funding for allied health telehealth services and care until 31 December 2021.

We have had confirmation that this extension includes telehealth psychology sessions. This means that with a valid Medicare referral you will continue to be eligible for a Medicare referral for psychology services accessed via Telehealth (video or phone).
