Rebates and Fees
Clients who have a Care Plan from their GP can claim $52.95 of the fee from Medicare.
How do I get a Medicare referral?
Under Medicare, GPs are responsible for managing the services offered to clients. If you are suffering from a Chronic Disease and your GP will create a care plan for you. This typically allows you a Medicare rebate for up to five sessions in any calendar year.
Do I need a Medicare referral?
Physiotherapy sessions are available to clients without a Care Plan or should you wish to extend your care beyond your Care plan. All you have to do is make an appointment. Rebates may be claimed from private health ancillary insurance, depending on your policy.
