Do I need a referral to see an Osteopath?
No, simply call and make a booking. Osteopaths are primary health care professionals. This means you do not need a referral from your Doctor. Your Osteopath will be able to consult with your Doctor in order to provide the best possible care for you.
Can I use my medicare card or Health insurance?
You are able claim the majority of your treatment costs with your Medicare card, provided you are on the Enhanced Primary Care (E.P.C.) Plan. Discuss your eligibility with your Osteopath and GP.
You are able to claim a portion of your treatment costs with your private health insurance. We can process your claim for you at the time of your appointment with our HICAPS facilities at reception.
What is the Enhanced Primary Care (E.P.C) plan?
The EPC Plan provides patients with five government-subsidised Allied Health consultations per year. Currently the subsidy is $50 per treatment. If you have been suffering from chronic (long-term) pain, ask your GP if you are eligible for this rebate.
