COVID-19 - supporting our health professionals

Country to Coast Queensland is supporting health professionals to respond to COVID-19.

As of 31 December 2022, PPE will no longer be distributed through the Australian Government’s Living with COVID program.

Access your local COVID-19 Case Management HealthPathway (link) for up to date information on COVID-19 and clinical guidance on the assessment, triage and management of COVID-19 in the community.

If you need a HealthPathways login, contact your local PHN HealthPathways officer.

Commissioned home visits

While most people with COVID-19 can recover at home with the support of GP Telehealth, some patients, such as those with co-morbidities or complex medical conditions, or people in Residential Aged Care Facilities, require an in-home visit.

Country to Coast Queensland will pay general practitioners, practice nurses, and nurse practitioners $250 per home visit for eligible COVID-19 patients. This payment does not cover routine monitoring or visits.

Non-Medicare vaccinations

Country to Coast Queensland will reimburse general practices for COVID-19 vaccinations administered to non-Medicare eligible patients. Reimbursements are made directly to the practice and in line with the prescribed MBS equivalent and PIP payments.
