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 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

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