Telehealth Practice Fees
Face-to-face provision of services is always preferred for superior clinical outcomes. However, there are certain circumstances where telehealth may be required (e.g. your remoteness, illness) and you may wish to consider this alternative. Medicare benefits are available for telehealth practice. Some private health insurers also may provide rebates on telehealth services (you will need to check with your provider).
PLEASE NOTE: Cancellation fees do apply (see here).

Six monthly progress review assessments are also recommended.
