New COVID-19 antiviral phone item added to August quick guide

A handy resource for busy GPs

Australian Doctor's COVID-19 and Telehealth MBS Items Quick Guide has been updated to include the new phone item for assessing antiviral eligibility in patients with COVID-19.

This item was added mid-July, following other key changes introduced at the start of the new financial year, including the indexation of rebates.

The longer phone consultation item was also amended on July 1, reverting to being available only to rural and remote GPs (MMM6-7). This item has now been removed from the updated card
