What to know about Telehealth fees
To be eligible for Medicare-funded telehealth services you must have seen your GP, or another GP at Bondi Doctors, for a face-to-face appointment at least once in the 12 months prior to the date of your telehealth consultation.
This means that if you haven't been to Bondi Doctors for a face to face appointment in the last 12 months, you will incur the full consultation cost as no Medicare rebate will be applied.

What type of Telehealth appointment do I need?
Bondi Doctors offers TWO types of telehealth appointments: phone or video telehealth.
The Medicare rebate you will receive after your consultation will vary depending on the type of telehealth appointment you book, so it is important you choose the correct one.
Video or 'FaceTime' Telehealth consults
Video telehealth appointments are considered best practice and Medicare offers rebates for a wide range of video telehealth appointment types.
To access video telehealth appointments you will need to download the AMS Connect app. Via the app, you can manage all your appointments at Bondi Doctors and access video or 'FaceTime' consults with your GP.
Phone or Audio Telehealth consults
A phone telehealth consult involves a phone call to your mobile number from a GP. Medicare offers rebates for a limited range of phone telehealth appointment types and for this reason you must book phone Telehealth consults through our reception team, by calling 9365 2833. Please consult the table below before booking your appointment.
