The Department of Health has advised that telehealth services for the MedsCheck, Home Medicines Review and Residential Medication Management Review programs are continuing for the immediate future. They will be reviewed in the new year by the Department of Health to decide whether there is a need to continue the current telehealth arrangements based on the progress of the pandemic.

Please note at this stage there have been no changes to the patient eligibility criteria or any other requirements in the relevant Program Rules.

It is the responsibility of providers to ensure that patients meet the telehealth eligibility criteria at the time of service and to familiarise themselves with the requirements of delivering a medication review via telehealth, which are available on the PPA website.
