Frequently asked questions

Everything you need to know

What do I need to get an eScript?

To request an eScript please add a healthcare identifier to your account; this will be:

  • a Medicare card number, if you’re an Australian citizen or permanent resident; or
  • an Individual Healthcare Identifier (IHI number) if you’re an overseas visitor, international student or temporary resident.

If prescribed, you will receive a digital ‘token’ sent by SMS or email which you can present to your preferred pharmacy for immediate collection of your medication.

What types of prescriptions can be managed via telehealth?

Telehealth is a good option for managing many types of medical prescriptions. Our patients see us for a variety of online prescriptions, from contraception through to erectile dysfunction, and for conditions ranging from high blood pressure to asthma & allergies. Approval of a medication request, and any repeat prescriptions, are at the doctor’s discretion. Some medications should be prescribed by one prescriber who has overall management of your condition. Schedule 4 drugs which have the potential to cause harm or be misused such as benzodiazepines, duromine, zolpidem, zopiclone, quetiapine and high strength codeine are not routinely prescribed and should be sourced from your regular GP. No schedule 8 controlled drug medication or drugs of addiction will be prescribed via our telehealth services.

Doctors on Demand consultations are private fee services, except where Medicare rebates are indicated above.

In July 2020 the Government announced changes to Medicare rebates for telehealth; That is, if we have not seen a patient face-to-face within the previous 12 months we will not be able to offer Medicare rebates for most of our services. Being a fully online service, we are wholly unable to meet this criteria.

Please note – the face-to-face requirement does not apply to:

• mental health services

We do offer a Medicare eligible service in this area.

If you have a benefit code provided by your Insurer or Employer, simply enter your code in the ‘Redeem a Benefit’ section when making your appointment to access your services for reduced or no fees.

*We build and maintain our own virtual health platform so we can ensure we have the best tools available for both clinical and patient experience. A booking fee of $2.95 per appointment supports investment in our technology and the development of new healthcare services.
^Your out-of-pocket costs may depend on the outcome of your appointment, and your eligibility as assessed by Medicare.
