Government’s National Health Plan for COVID-19

The Government has published a number of Fact Sheets to support its $2.4 billion package which aims to slow the spread of COVID-19 in Australia.

Part of the plan includes temporary MBS and DVA items which doctors and nurses can use when delivering bulk billed health services via telehealth. Also the Central Patient COVID-19 Triage Hotline (1800 020 080) will be expanded to help alleviate the number of patients presenting to general practices and emergency departments.
