IMPORTANT CHANGE TO BILLING ARRANGEMENTS FOR TELEHEALTH CONSULTATIONS
We no longer completely bulk bill the telehealth and telephone consults.
These will now incur a fee that is the same as our usual Practice fees and those patients who are charged can get the Medicare rebate as they would if they attended the clinic. We will continue to bulk bill pension card holders and children under 12yrs. Health care card holders will receive a discounted fee.
Please ask reception if not sure.
DON’T IGNORE YOUR HEALTH
We are continually reminded that while we must be careful going outside our home into shopping centres and other places where groups congregate, and now after 5th December, recording your name, phone number, and arrival time at many venues and also ensuring that physical distancing is maintained and sanitizer is used, taking care of your ongoing medical needs is very important.
Medical practices do not need to record these details however.
Our Medical Centre is a very safe place to visit. It may look a bit different to when you last came but it is a very safe environment. We are practicing strict hygiene and social distancing measures and diverting any potential COVID-19 cases.
So don’t ignore your need to personally visit Dalyellup Family Medical Centre and speak with your GP.
TELEHEALTH AT DFMC
The Australian Government has extended Medicare funding for Telehealth until 31st March 2021 for GPs to provide services via telehealth (video calls or videoconferencing), or phone if telehealth is not available. The purpose is to allow people to access essential health services in their home to reduce their risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus.
- Please call DFMC on 9795 6422 to book a telehealth or phone consultation if required.
- If you have a smartphone with email on it, we will send you a link for the video call. We can also make this video call on your tablet, laptop or computer.
- 5-10 minutes before your telehealth appointment open the link emailed to you.
- You will be asked to give your first name and then hit the ‘check in’ button.
- The GP will call you.
If you have respiratory symptoms (cough, sore throat) please measure your temperature before the consultation if you have a thermometer.
