There is no cost to access Telehealth as an appointment option. You do not need to purchase any software to participate. However, some clinics may request your permission to bulkbill Medicare at the beginning of the consultation – as would usually occur in-person.
Please note, if dialling in from home, Telehealth will use some of your internet data/capacity. A 15 minute consultation uses approximately 130 megabytes (Mb) of your data plan. If you join the call with your GP, you will need to ask them if there will be any cost to you.
