No, not at all. The purpose behind Telebaby is to get you help quickly and you’ll be consulting with an expert paediatrician. Unfortunately, because no referral is required, we cannot offer a Medicare rebate unless you do get a referral from your GP or specialist first.
The price will vary depending on whether you have a referral or not. If you visit your GP and you feel you may need to utilise Telebaby, if things don’t improve or you’re worried, then ask your GP for a referral.
Referrals should be addressed to :
Suite 1, Ground floor
135-153 New South Head Road
Edgecliff NSW 2027
Medicare rebate can only be claimed if you have:
- GP referral prior to your consultation
- If your child has a Medicare number
If you have both at the time of consultation, we will process the Medicare claim for you.
If you have a GP referral but do not have a Medicare number for your child yet - don’t worry! Just email us the Medicare number once your child receives it, and we will process the rebate on your behalf.
You can claim up to $143.35 for an initial consultation. You can claim up to $71.70 for a follow up consultation.
Please note that Medicare rebates are subject to change.
