Frequently asked questions

A specialist referral is given by a primary care physician or a general practitioner when a patient’s medical condition requires expertise or treatment beyond the scope of the primary care provider’s practice.
Depending on your symptoms, your telehealth doctor will determine the type of specialist you need to see. The GP will then provide you with an online referral letter to the specialist, in the form of a referral request sent electronically to your device, within minutes.
Specialist fees will vary by specialist. Please contact your specialist to understand their fee schedule and any Medicare rebates their services may be eligible for.
You can take your specialist referral to any specialist in the field of health care it is issued for. You can check with the specialist clinic for appointments, gap fees and other details.
A specialist referral is valid for 12 months in Australia. The validity starts from the day you visit the specialist rather than the day it is issued.

While it is true that some specialists may accept patients without a referral, many require one for several reasons. One significant factor is the financial aspect: without a referral, patients typically must pay for the specialist consultation entirely out of pocket, as they will not be eligible for reimbursement from Medicare.

However, the necessity of a referral extends beyond financial considerations. Seeing a general practitioner (GP) first is crucial because they are typically in the best position to determine the type of specialist you most need to see. GPs have comprehensive knowledge of various medical conditions and can assess your symptoms, medical history, and any preliminary tests or investigations you may have undergone. Based on this information, they can make an informed decision about which specialist is best suited to address your specific healthcare needs. 

There are many reasons why we might need a specialist referral. They offer advanced training and expertise in specific medical areas, ensuring the most appropriate care for complex conditions. For chronic or intricate medical issues requiring ongoing monitoring, specialists deliver specialised care, while also offering valuable second opinions to confirm diagnoses or explore alternative treatments. Moreover, specialist referrals facilitate seamless coordination of care between primary care providers and specialists, ensuring comprehensive and personalised healthcare tailored to individual needs.
