No tripled bulk-billing incentives for level A consults, health officials say

For longer video telehealth items, the incentives will be restricted to patients who register via MyMedicare.

Bulk-billed level A consults will only attract the existing bulk-billing incentives — $6.60 in metropolitan areas — even after new incentives worth three times as much are introduced in November.

While hinted at in the federal budget, health officials have now confirmed that level A consults will be excluded, while revealing new details on the MyMedicare patient enrolment scheme.
