The COVID-19 assessment and management algorithm (HERE) has been updated. The new algorithm now aligns with national rates for COVID-19 swabbing and comes into effect from midnight, Friday 18 September.
Please note that from this time there will no longer be different payments for ‘Out of Hours’ swabbing and face-to-face visits that do not result in a swab. These will now be paid at the rate of $60 per patient, rather than $80 per patient. These rates will be in place until further notice
