Frequently asked questions

Referrals are common when a patient requires specialised care beyond the scope of the primary care provider’s expertise or when further evaluation or treatment is necessary. Referrals are also issued for medical services such as pathology tests, blood tests, and radiology tests if the doctor issuing it thinks further examination is necessary before concluding a patient’s condition.

An online referral letter can be obtained from telehealth platforms. Some of the benefits of having an online referral letter are:

a. The convenience of requesting it from anywhere and at any time

b. No waiting for weeks for a medical practitioner’s appointment to request a referral or travelling to a general practitioner’s office

c. The medical referral letter, if issued will be in an electronic format making it easy to access and store

d. Integration and seamless coordination among healthcare providers

Specialists are doctors with extensive training and education in their respective fields, equipping them with the expertise necessary to address intricate medical issues comprehensively. A specialist referral is needed when the primary healthcare professional thinks specialised knowledge is required to diagnose a medical condition.

Yes, a referral can be requested via a telehealth appointment. If the online doctor or health practitioner thinks that a referral is necessary for further investigation of your medical condition, they will issue an online referral letter which will be sent to you through email. It is to be noted that medical practitioners could also refuse to issue a referral if they think the medical condition doesn’t require a specialist or a diagnostic test. In this case, they will give you medical advice and could even provide you with an online script, if warranted.

A telehealth consultation requires a device that has a camera, and microphone and could be connected to an active internet connection. Simply book a telehealth appointment, fill in the details, make payment and connect with a telehealth doctor via a link sent to you on your phone.

At Hola Health, there are two kinds of consultations, a short consultation (up to 8 minutes) and a long consultation (up to 15 minutes). If your telehealth consultation results in the doctor issuing an instant scripts online, medical certificate online, or an online referral, they will be sent to you via SMS or email.

According to Services Australia, when a general practitioner (GP) refers a patient to a specialist, the referral typically remains valid for 12 months from the date the specialist first sees the patient, unless specified otherwise. This duration ensures that patients receive timely access to specialist care. These medical referral letters can be extended beyond 12 months or can be given for an indefinite period for ongoing care. GPs (General Practitioners) must issue new referrals for any new or unrelated medical conditions requiring specialist intervention beyond the initial referral period.

At Hola Health, telehealth appointments, an instant scripts online, online referrals, and online medical certificates are not covered by Medicare. On the other hand, mental health treatment plans are 100% bulk billed under Medicare at Hola Health.

In Australia, patients technically do not require a referral from a general practitioner (GP) to see a specialist. However, if the patient wishes to receive a rebate from Medicare to help cover the cost of their specialist consultation, obtaining a GP referral is necessary.

This process is in place to ensure that patients receive appropriate and coordinated care. A GP referral acts as a formal recommendation from the primary care provider to the specialist, indicating the need for specialised medical attention. It also helps ensure that the specialist is informed about the patient’s medical history, previous treatments, and any relevant diagnostic tests.

From a Medicare perspective, having a GP referral demonstrates that the specialist consultation is medically justified and falls within the criteria for Medicare rebates. Without a valid medical referral letter, patients may not be eligible for Medicare rebates, meaning they would have to cover the full cost of the specialist consultation out of pocket.

Overall, while patients have the freedom to directly seek specialist care without a referral in Australia, obtaining a GP referral is crucial if they wish to receive financial assistance from Medicare to help offset the cost of their specialist consultation.
