Neurological Alliance Australia – Statement on Expanded Telehealth

The Neurological Alliance Australia has today issued a Joint Position Statement calling on the Australian Government to permanently extend the amendments made to MBS telehealth items introduced in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These supports are currently scheduled to cease after 30 September 2020.  The members of the NAA, representing adults and children living with progressive neurological or neuro-muscular diseases in Australia believe strongly that telehealth offers the health system, both public and private, the opportunity to provide enhanced options for safe care for this vulnerable population and new models of efficient care for the whole population.

Lewis Kaplan, CEO of Huntington’s NSW ACT said that, “Telehealth should be permanently embedded into the health system to maintain improved accessibility, flexibility and safety in the health care system for the most vulnerable, particularly those with the kinds of progressive neurological or neuro-muscular conditions that we represent”.
