Commissioned home visits

We have initiated a new program to facilitate home visits by GPs and practice nurses to patients who are managing COVID-19 at home and may require face to face treatment, e.g. for a fall, or a wound. This includes home visits to Residential Aged Care Facilities (RACFs) and people who are isolating at home as a close contact.

You will receive a flat fee for all visits and practices will be required to submit an invoice on the last day of the month to covid19phn@coordinare.org.au. Once the invoice has been received, practices will be directed to submit a report with details of the service provided to be eligible to claim the fee.

Currently a pool of funding is available until 31 October 2022. However, if the number of home visits provided is high, funding may be expended prior to this date. 

  • Monthly reporting

  • Funding

    Your practice will be paid a $250 fee for each visit, however is unable to claim an additional MBS Medicare rebate.
