Who is eligible for Medicare funded telehealth services?

Telepsychiatry

Taking into account the current Covid-19 pandemic, the Australian Government has extended the eligibility criteria for telepsychiatry to include Medicare card holders in metropolitan area.

  • Our telepsychiatry initial assessments are currently 100% bulk billed for all Medicare card holders (due to Australian Government extending the eligibility to Metropolitan areas).
  • Once the Government extended eligibility criteria comes to an end, for 100% bulk billed appointments, you need to be living in eligible areas
  • To find out if you live in an eligible area click here. Enter in your home address and select Australian Standard Geographical Classification Remoteness Area (ASGC-RA). If you live in an ASGC-RA 2-5 region you are eligible for this service. Our psychiatrists will be able to bulk-bill you for both initial assessments and ongoing telepsychiatry consultations in most cases.
  • For non-Medicare card holders / private patients, telepsychiatry services can be accessed at a low cost. Please contact us for further information on 1300 959 942 or admin@hellodoc.com.au

Prepare for your appointment

  • Think about what you need to ask your healthcare provider – consider writing a short list

Prepare your space

  • Find a quiet, private and comfortable place to sit
  • Ensure there is enough lighting in the space
  • Ensure you have everything you need ready such as a glass of water, tissues, pen and paper
  • Consider a ‘do not disturb’ sign for the door

Prepare your device

  • Ensure that your device can access videoconferencing link and meeting ID, that would have been sent to you by HelloDoc
  • Consider a trial run with a friend – check your internet connection, practice using your webcam, and make sure your audio/microphone is working
  • Charge your electronic device (phone, laptop, iPad/ Tab) or plug it in during the appointment
  • Headphones can help with sound quality: if available, have these ready to use

For patients who were referred for our services

  • The Psychiatrist or Psychologist will send a report back to your referring GP and you will need to book a follow up appointment with GP to go through the report.

For private / direct patients

  • As the outcomes of consultations vary from patient to patient, the Psychiatrist or Psychologist will discuss the next steps with you, upon assessment
