After Hours Doctor Appointments FAQs

Are online doctor appointments covered by Medicare?

The Commonwealth Government has announced an end to Medicare rebates and bulk billing for Telehealth GP Consults effective Monday 20 July 2020. Under current COVID-19 health measures, only GP Clinics that have seen a patient face to face within the past 12 months are now eligible to claim Medicare for a telehealth consult. You may be eligible to Redeem a Benefit using your insurance policy or employer issued voucher code.

Can I get a prescription from an online doctor consultation?

Yes, in fact most consultations will be for patients needing a prescription. If the doctor provides a prescription, you will have the choice of having your script sent to your local pharmacy for immediate collection. Please ensure the pharmacy you choose is open when you plan to collect your medication. You will have the option to change the pharmacy when you confirm your appointment.

How can I receive my prescription?

If your doctor prescribes medication for you, you can receive your prescription by:

  • Electronic prescription sent to your mobile as an SMS; or
  • Digital copy of a paper prescription sent via fax and email to your local pharmacy

Electronic prescriptions are available to all Medicare card holders and are a convenient alternative to a paper prescription, which is no longer required. An SMS is sent directly to your mobile phone, which you take to your preferred pharmacy, and they dispense your medication by scanning the code within the SMS.
