COVID-19 vaccine rollout:
Pharmacy participation in Phase 2A

Community pharmacies are invited to express their interest in participating in Phase 2A of the COVID-19 vaccination program. EOI submission will be via a personalised email link that will be sent to community pharmacies.

Telehealth to support the COVID-19 response

As part of the Australian Government’s response to COVID-19, twenty-four new items have been introduced to ensure continued access to essential health services for all Australians.

The new temporary MBS telehealth items will allow providers to continue to deliver essential health care services to patients within their care. The new temporary MBS telehealth items will have similar requirements to normal timed consultation items and must be bulk billed, meaning MBS rebates are paid to the provider.

Financial support measures for service providers

There is a variety of support measures in place for service providers affected by the impact of COVID-19. These include support measures recently announced by the Australian Government, the Queensland Government, tax relief initiatives via the Australian Taxation Office and support packages from Australian banks.
