Self isolating?  Book in for a Telehealth Consultation!

Published: 19 March 2020

Dear Clients,

 

Even before the impact of coronavirus, there has been a growing consumer demand for access to video-consultation services provided by physiotherapists. There are now lots of evidence that shows video consultations are cost effective, safe and well-received by patients – especially by those living in rural and remote areas, or who have other forms of access issues due to age or disability.

 

As surprising as it may sound, physiotherapists can perform many of the manual assessments we conduct in our practices simply using video observation. We can also take a full history, provisionally diagnose your injuries and health concerns, give comprehensive advice, supervise exercise therapy and educate you about self-treatment options.

 

Unfortunately, private health insurers do not provide a rebate for physiotherapy services currently delivered via video consultation, but this is likely to change with growing pressure especially in response to COVID-19. We can offer you short, medium and long consultations to suit your situation, and given the impact of this virus is having on people, we are very willing to discount our standard fees to ensure you don’t fall behind in your treatment.

 

All you will need is a computer or smart device with an internet connection, and we can send you a text message with a secure ID login and access to a video consultation with your preferred physio.

 

Appointment type and price list:

Consultation Duration Price Description
Short Consultation 10 mins  $25 For clients who just need to touch base with their practitioner, triage and follow-up
Free Initial Assessment 10 mins $0 For new clients with an injury or requiring advice, education or assessment.
Standard Consultation 20 mins $50 For existing clients with an injury or requiring advice, education or assessment.
Extended Consultation 40 mins $85 For existing clients with an injury or requiring advice, education or assessment.

You can simply pay for the telehealth consultation over the phone.

 

If you have any questions regarding our telehealth consultations please give our friendly reception staff a call on 9481 1626.

 

Kind regards,

The team at Back In Motion Northcote
