You asked. We listened.
Over the past few years, there have been many requests for Coviu to integrate with HealthEngine, Australia's largest online health marketplace.
Speech pathologists and psychologists across Australia & New Zealand will now be able to conduct a valid remote clinical assessment via a telehealth consult from the Coviu platform.
Coviu is proud to announce the integration with Rosemary Health is now live and available for use on the platform.
PHA, the Australian private health insurance industry’s peak representative body, currently oversees 24 health funds and 97% of all Australian's covered by private health insurance.
Universal telehealth rebates have finally arrived in Australia in what Prime Minister Scott Morrison declared “is a decade's worth of work in a matter of days.”
However, the everyday Australian is excluded from these rebates.
At Coviu, we understand almost 70% of Australia's healthcare funding is provided via the government. This means that reimbursements for telehealth are essential for patient and provider uptake.
The Australian Government has recently activated its Coronavirus emergency plan, treating the virus as a pandemic. Currently, there are an estimated 95 000 cases of the virus globally, spreading across 84 countries. As of 5th March, there have been 52 cases and one death confirmed in Australia alone.
Coviu is always on the lookout for new information about telehealth in Australia, particularly when it comes to funding under Medicare or other Government programs. We've recently discovered a relatively unknown piece of information, that could drastically change the way our elderly population is receiving care.
