Appointments with a General Practitioner as an in-person consultation or follow-up appointment for the purpose of medicinal cannabis are covered under Medicare and receive a partial rebate.

How it works

Cost & Medicare rebate

Medicare rebate

Medicare provides a partial rebate for in-clinic appointments, not telehealth (unless it is a follow up and your first appointment was in-clinic).

Private health funds

Some private health funds now cover medicinal cannabis consultations and prescriptions. Check with your provider today.
