WorkSafe Victoria has announced they have introduced telehealth consultations for physiotherapy clients.
The new item codes will allow workers to access essential health services in their home if they enter self-isolation and reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 for vulnerable people in the community.
This is a temporary measure and will be reviewed regularly by WorkSafe Victoria.
It is expected that telehealth services are provided when clinically appropriate and should not replace face-to-face consultations unless there is a need.
Please call if you believe this service is appropriate for you.
We are still are still waiting to hear if other third party insurers such as TAC and DVA will introduce a similar plan.
