Have you seen the latest with lots of tips and hints!
Medicare has changed their rules 3 times this month due to COVID-19 so we are being kept on our toes!
As per 20 April 2020, it was announced that specialists and allied health providers are not required to bulk bill under a Medicare Team Care Arrangement. Therefore, are not limited to a 20 minute bulk billing session. Typically a consult takes 30-60 mins so not having this limitation lifted is a good thing so we can make sure you get a adequate session to support you rather than feeling rushed and a number.
As a gesture of goodwill however during this challenging time BENN-efit Nutrition will bulk bill telephone/video consultations for those with a concession card or child under 16 years. Please be aware that due to Medicare requirements, these bulk billed sessions will only be 20 minutes in length and you must reply to this email agreeing to the service being bulk billed. As a result of the limited time allotment, several consultation maybe required to cover all requirements.
