Chronic Disease GP Management Plans and Team Care Arrangements
At Complete Physio Exercise Performance, we provide Medicare-subsidised physiotherapy under Chronic Disease Management Plans, facilitating up to 5 visits per year with efficient Medicare claim assistance.
Does Medicare cover Physio?
Physiotherapy appointments can be claimed under Medicare if you have a referral from your GP. Chronic Disease Management plans (formerly Enhanced Primary Care or EPC plans) allow a GP to involve a multidisciplinary team in your care.
5 Physiotherapy Visits per Year.
The referral/plan would enable you to access 5 physiotherapy sessions per calendar year that are subsidised by Medicare. There is an out-of-pocket gap payment associated with these Medicare claims as our consult fee is higher than what Medicare will cover.
We will require full payment at the time of the appointment and our reception team will claim back the Medicare rebate for you so that you can be reimbursed.
Speak to your GP to see if you are eligible for a Chronic Disease Management Plan. For further information regarding the Complete. Chronic Disease Team Care Arrangements and Medicare claiming policy, please email [email protected] or phone (03) 9882 2020. Our modern clinic is located at 656 Bridge Rd in Richmond.
