In this 10-minute video, Matt Woollard (Chief Operations Officer, National Skin Cancer Centres) explains the new telehealth Medicare Benefits Scheme item numbers.

Some of the topics covered in the video include:

  • What is telehealth?
  • What technologies can you use?
  • What are the MBS requirements for telehealth?
  • What are the item numbers?
  • Who can access the item numbers?
  • Bulk billing and private billing
