Telehealth at Moonee Valley Health and Fitness
Online Exercise Physiology, Physiotherapy & Dietitics is essentially an online video consultation rather than a face-to-face consultation. It is also known as TeleHealth. Our Exercise Physiology service has now been added and is available via video so that you can get access to exercise prescription as well as physio treatment and advice from the comfort of your home.
Telehealth allows you to access our expert assessment, diagnosis, and management of your pain or injury right from your computer or smartphone.
The Hon Greg Hunt, the Federal Minister for Health recently confirmed that ALL allied health businesses can continue working face-to-face and are encouraged to do so. The Prime Minister has also announced additional TeleHealth Physiotherapy under the MBS (Medicare). The new items were announced on Monday 30th March 2020. Private Health Insurers are creating TeleHealth Physiotherapy items that will be available from 14th April 2020. Stay tuned for the latest information as these additional items are rolled out.
In addition, he has indicated that they are now developing full allied health telehealth options within the week for allied health along with all other health and medical services. This will be part of a staged plan. “Face to face services for many remain vital so where possible, we encourage you to continue. I thank you for your courage, dedication and care”, the Minister said.
