PSYCH2U offers Psychiatric and Psychology appointments through our telehealth platform and face to face Psychology appointments for patients residing in Hobart and surrounding areas. What is telehealth I hear you say? Telehealth is a consultation conducted by video or via a personal computer between you and your Psychiatrist or Psychologist. The consultation may occur at home, at your Medical Centre or anywhere you are able to connect to the internet.
The benefits of using telehealth to access your Psychiatrist or Psychologist are:
- Reduced waiting times
- Reduced travel time
To enable PSYCH2U to bulk bill your appointment you must live outside a major city. Telehealth eligibility is determined according to the Australian Standard Geographical Classification Remoteness Area (ASGC-RA) classifications. Medicare benefits are available for services provided to patients outside of RA1 – Major Cities. You can identify if you are eligible by looking at the map here http://www.doctorconnect.gov.
