On April 1st, 2020, Cliniko founder Joel Friedlaender and Medipass co-founder Pete Williams discussed the recent addition of telehealth bulk billing rebates for allied health practitioners in Australia. Pete is a wealth of knowledge on all things Medicare, and this webinar they recorded covers everything you need to know about doing Medicare rebates through telehealth.

Joel catches up with Pete from Medipass to talk about telehealth and Medicare bulk billing.

We've complied the top questions that were answered during the webinar, including which professions are eligible and whether you need to use telehealth-specific item codes, into a handy guide all about telehealth and Medicare bulk billing over on our support site.

You can submit bulk bill rebates for telehealth appointments offered through Cliniko. To do so, you will first need to integrate Cliniko with Medipass.
