Health Minister Mark Butler is seeking an urgent briefing from health officials after a series of Crikey disclosures on the Morrison government's funding of faith-based rehabilitation services.

His office said Butler had sought the briefing on the status of grants made to the Pentecostal-linked Esther Foundation and the Hillsong-linked one80TC rehab facilities, as well as "assessment processes" in place for "private rehabilitation services receiving Commonwealth funds".

Crikey's reports on the rehab facilities were described as "concerning".
